Crystal Palace: Fans buzz at Will Hughes signing -Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace confirmed the signing of Watford midfielder Will Hughes on Saturday afternoon.

And, as to be expected, the transfer news had a number of Eagles supporters talking on social media.

The 26-year-old has become Patrick Vieira’s sixth signing in charge at Selhurst Park and has penned a three-year contract.

How many more signings do Palace need this summer?







Palace have reportedly paid the Hornets an initial £6m for Hughes’ services, with a transfer potentially rising to £10m in the future with add-ons.

The central midfielder rejected a new five-year deal at Watford earlier in the summer and was training with the club’s Under-23’s as his future was up in the air.

Hughes, who can also operate on either flank, has over 300 games of senior football under his belt, with 77 of his appearances coming in the Premier League.
