Crystal Palace have announced the signing of Patrick van Aanholt on a four and a half year deal.

The Dutch left back started his career at PSV Eindhoven where he played in the youth team, and then secured a move to Chelsea.

Loans to Coventry City and Newcastle United were then followed by eight appearances for the West Londoners, and further loan moves to Leicester City, Wigan Athletic and Vitesse Arnhem.

He joined Sunderland permanently in July 2013 and went on to play 88 times for the Mackems.

Speaking about his arrival, Eagles boss Sam Allardyce said: "I am delighted that Patrick has joined us. We had great success together at Sunderland where he was instrumental in keeping them in the Premier League last season.

"He will add pace and energy to our team, has strong defensive qualities and has the added ability to score and create goals".
