Townsend Joins Crystal Palace

Written by Newcastle Utd

Newcastle United can confirm that Andros Townsend has signed for Crystal Palace


Newcastle United can confirm that winger Andros Townsend has signed for Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee.

Townsend joined the Magpies from Tottenham Hotspur in January, and made 13 appearances for the Club, scoring four goals.

"Naturally we are very disappointed to lose Andros but we are bound by the terms of his contract," said Newcastle United managing director Lee Charnley.

"Given our situation in January it was a condition of him joining that we included a buy-out clause. However, I am sure now with Rafa as our manager we will not be in a position whereby we will need to agree to clauses of this nature in the future.

"Despite Andros' departure today, we believe with the signings we have made this week we have strengthened the squad.

"Rafa and I are working very well together and we are confident we are building a squad that will meet our objectives for the season ahead of us.

"Finally, I would like to say Andros was a great professional during his time with us, who gave his all for the Club, and I wish him all the very best."
