DONE DEAL: Crystal Palace complete signing of USMNT ace Richards from Bayern Munich


Crystal Palace have completed the signing of USMNT defender Chris Richards from Bayern Munich.

The Eagles paid an initial £8.5m plus £2.5m in add-ons, with Richards signing a five-year contract with the club.

Richards is Eagles boss Patrick Vieira's fourth signing of the summer after Sam Johnstone, Malcolm Ebiowei and Cheick Doucoure.

"It'll be cool to be part of this historic club - I'm really excited for it," Richards said.

"I grew up watching the Premier League and of course watching [Wilfried] Zaha, so it'll be cool to spend some time on the field with them.

"It's a lot of young players but also young players who have a lot of fight. Palace is a club that seems like they're always fighting."
