Jermaine Easter admits he is relishing the opportunity at Crystal Palace as he bids to keep Dougie Freedman's side in the Championship.
The Wales international striker signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Eagles after MK Dons accepted a bid in January.
Easter was in the midst of a loan-spell at promotion-challengers Swansea when Palace expressed an interest in the 29-year-old.
Easter is now plying his trade at the other end of England's second tier but claims he is settling in well at Selhurst Park after being afforded the comfort of a long-term deal.
"I have not been there long but I am enjoying being back in the Championship," he said.
"My spell at Swansea went well but Palace made an offer before the loan was up and MK Dons accepted it.
"It's a reasonably long-term deal. I have just relocated and my wife is moving down with me in a few weeks. I feel I am settling in well."
