Kebe joins Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have signed winger Jimmy Kebe from Reading.

Mali international Kebe, 29, joins on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Manager Ian Holloway also confirmed the deal after Saturday's 3-1 win over Sunderland.

Kebe has not featured for Championship side Reading since March.

He was criticised by his manager Nigel Adkins this week after declaring himself unfit on the eve of the 6-0 League Cup defeat at Peterborough.

Palace had been looking to bring in a winger since Wilfried Zaha joined Manchester United this summer.

"It's a big move for me," said Kebe. "I didn't know if I was going to be able to move in this transfer window but getting back to the Premier League was my main target. I'm very excited about it.

"I talked to the manager and you can see how excited he is and I'm ready for the challenge."
