The Eagles secured another summer recruit this afternoon, landing 22-year-old striker Connor Wickham from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee, and subsequently bolstering the attacking options at Alan Pardew's disposal for the coming season.
Following the arrival of Patrick Bamford, on loan from Chelsea, Wickham is the second striker to join Palace this summer - and his transfer from the Black Cats was well received on Twitter.
