Crystal Palace announced the arrival of John Textor on Wednesday afternoon, which, as to be expected, had a lot of Eagles fans talking on social media.
Textor joins the club as an investor and director, becoming the club’s fourth partner alongside Steve Parish, Josh Harris and David Blitzer.
Palace have already spent over £45m on three new signings this summer in Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Joachim Andresen, and it appears as if Textor may have helped the club facilitate those moves.
How many more signings do Palace need this summer?
Parish admitted on the club’s website following Textor’s announcement that the American ‘has invested significant sums’ which has helped ‘the rejuvenation of the squad’.
The Guardian stated after Textor’s arrival that he has bought a stake worth £87.5m at Selhurst Park, almost 18% of the club.
He initially wanted to buy Palace outright but will now work alongside fellow Americans Harris and Blitzer as well as Parish.
Palace fans react
The Eagles shared the news regarding Textor on their official Twitter page. These supporters were quick to give their positive thoughts to the update, with one labelling it as ‘massive’.
“So excited by this”
“Bring us some more money!”
“Great news we needed a bit of a boost”
