Nathan Ferguson signed for Crystal Palace in the club's first signing of the summer 2020 window, signing a contract that sees the highly rated full-back play in red and blue until the end of the 2022/23 season.

21 July 2020

Just a teenager, he had his breakthrough campaign in 2019/20, starting West Brom’s first game of 2019/20 in a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest and grabbing an assist.

The following month, he netted his first and only senior domestic goal in a 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

Ferguson continued to play regularly for the Baggies until a knee injury curtailed his season after 21 appearances.

Before this, the young full-back rose through West Brom’s youth setup from the age of eight. He has also represented England at Under-18, U19 and U20 level - collecting one, three and four caps at the respective age groups.

Ferguson himself says is happy to play across the backline, but, more specifically, he can operate in both full-back positions, where he appears comfortable and assured.

He is right-footed but versatile on the pitch, with the passing vision to contribute to offensive passages - very much in the mould of the 'modern' full-back.
