Peter Ramage: Back with Crystal Palace

Ramage linked with up Palace in pre-season and has been rewarded with a one-year deal after impressing boss Dougie Freedman.

The 28-year-old took in a loan spell with the Eagles last season and is delighted to have secured a return to Selhurst Park.

He posted on Twitter: "Finally put the old autograph to paper on permanent deal at #cpfc. Couldn't be more happy to be back at eagles, can't wait for season...."

Ramage can play at centre-back and right-back and will provide valuable defensive cover following the departures of Nathaniel Clyne and Anthony Gardner.

He is the fourth summer arrival at Palace following the signings of defenders Aaron Martin and Joel Ward and striker Aaron Wilbraham.
