Rob Holding has joined Crystal Palace from Arsenal in a permanent move.

The 27-year-old defender has signed a three-year deal at the south London club for a fee of £1million with £2.5million in add-ons.

The Athletic reported earlier on deadline day that he was completing a medical at Palace.

Arsenal held negotiations over Holding with Sevilla and Palace for either a loan or permanent move for the defender who has not made an appearance for the north London side this season.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson spoke on the possibility of signing the Englishman earlier on Friday saying: “He is a player who has interested us for a while. Dougie Freedman (Palace sporting director) knows him very well.

“We’re working on the basis that you can’t have too many quality players in your squad. If he was available and it’s a deal that is doable I’d be very happy to work with him.

“Our squad is not that massive. There is space in the 25-man squad for another player. If it could be Rob we’d be happy with that.”

Holding joined Arsenal from Bolton Wanderers in the summer of 2016 and has made 162 appearances for the north London side winning two FA Cups and three Community Shields during that time.
