Crystal Palace have made their second signing of the 2021/22 summer transfer window - goalkeeper Remi Matthews has signed on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old, who boasts a wealth of experience in England's Football League, was released from Sunderland at the end of last season.

It comes in the aftermath of a massive goalkeeping turnaround for the Eagles, who have also confirmed the departures of Wayne Hennessey and Stephen Henderson.

The Welsh shot-stopper departs Selhurst Park after spending seven years at the south London club, accumulating 134 appearances along the way.

But with the 34-year-old looking increasingly out of favour, already being below Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland in the pecking order, Wales' most capped goalkeeper will seek pasture's new. 

Several Premier League clubs are already rumoured to have an interest in the departing veteran. Aston Villa and Chelsea are among the clubs reported to be in for a swoop.

  • Matthews brings value in experience

Palace chairman Steve Parish said: “Remi brings plenty of Football League experience with him, and we are really pleased to add him to our goalkeeping ranks, where he will continue to develop under the tutelage of Dean Kiely, alongside Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland.”
