Crystal Palace boss Peter Taylor has made his first summer signing with the capture of Millwall left-back Tony Craig.

Craig, 22, signed a three-year contract after passing a medical at the club's Beckenham training ground.

The transfer fee is undisclosed but is believed to be in the region of £250,000 and Craig has set his sights on promotion.

“It's a nice step up for me. I've played in the Championship before with Millwall and I'm thoroughly looking forward to it,” he said.

“I heard about the interest around three weeks ago and this week the two clubs agreed a fee and it's all been finalised now.

“Hopefully we're looking to get in the play-offs and go up so we all want a good season for the club.”

Craig was a trainee at Wimbledon, before joining Millwall's youth ranks where he made his first team debut at 18 in 2003.

He made more than 80 appearances and scooped Milwall's last two Young Player of the Year awards.

The Thamesmead-born ace will link up with former Millwall players Matt Lawrence, Darren Ward, Paul Ifill, Mark Kennedy and Leon Cort in the Palace squad.
