'Assembling the jigsaw' - what Hodgson said after Eze signed

29 August 2020

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson expressed his satisfaction at the club signing Eberechi Eze from Queens Park Rangers on a five-year deal, explaining that they are "assembling the pieces of our jigsaw".

Eze put pen to paper as Palace's second signing of the summer 2020 transfer window, arriving as a highly rated prospect and QPR's 19/20 Player of the Season.

"We’re really pleased to be able to welcome Eberechi Eze to the club," Hodgson said. "He’s a player that we have followed and admired for a long time now, and a player who has enormous potential to build on the last two fine seasons he’s had at Queens Park Rangers which has also resulted in him breaking in to the England Under-21s squad.

"Alongside recent signing Nathan Ferguson, we are assembling the pieces of our jigsaw with regard to bringing in some fresh, young players to our squad who will provide the quality and energy we have highlighted as being necessary for us to take the next steps forward.

"He is an ambitious and dedicated young man whose future looks extremely bright. I am delighted that it will be with us."
