Kelly completes Crystal Palace move

After avoiding relegation for the first time in the Premier League, Crystal Palace will look for another successful 2014-15 campaign.

Liverpool's Martin Kelly has completed his move to Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

Kelly, 24, struggled with injury last season and has failed to break into the Liverpool first team despite being considered a player of some potential.

He told cpfc.co.uk: "I'm over the moon. It was a lot of travelling to get down yesterday, but I'm glad to have signed and I'm looking forward to the weekend.

"I'd heard about a potential move at the start of the summer, but I just wanted to concentrate on playing again in pre-season. I played a lot of games, which is what I needed. I've been out, fit, but not playing competitively all of last season.

"Now is the time at that age where I need to get back to playing week-in week-out. I'm looking forward to playing under Tony [Pulis] and playing regular football again.

"I remember coming here with Liverpool at the back end of last season to the 3-3 draw and the fans were incredible. That was one of the only stadiums I've come to where it felt like Liverpool fans the way they got behind the team on Champions League nights.

"The fans are massive are massive at any club - they were brilliant at Liverpool -- and they seem brilliant here. But I've looked around the training ground and all the posters on the wall are about the team. That's what I want, to play for a team."

A statement on the Liverpool website read: "The 24-year-old has joined the London club on a permanent deal after agreeing terms and passing a medical at Selhurst Park.

"Kelly, a product of Liverpool's Academy system, made a total of 62 appearances for the Reds, scoring once, after making his first-team debut against PSV Eindhoven in December 2008. Everybody at the club would like to wish Martin all the best for the future."
