Fraizer Campbell spoke to cpfc.co.uk just moments after completing his move to Selhurst Park and was relieved that the deal had finally been completed.
"I am delighted to sign on the dotted line and become a Crystal Palace player and now I am really looking forward to being part of this club and meeting the other lads," he said.
"Last season this club made great progress, I remember the run of games without defeat and from when Tony Pulis came in he got the club moving up the league.
"Around Christmas looking in at this club it looked like Palace were dead and buried but the gaffer breathed some fresh life into the club and added to the squad to help the team push up to 11th."
The 26-year-old is looking forward to meeting up with his new team mates and is excited once again to be playing in the top flight.
"This is a great opportunity for myself to, firstly, get back in the Premier League and also have the chance to be around a great manager and some fantastic players," Campbell added.
"The last couple of weeks have been frustrating for me but I can't wait to get started now in the red and blue of Crystal Palace."
