Edgar Davids has revealed he is ending his stint with Crystal Palace after just over two months with the Championship club.

The veteran Dutchman joined Palace in August on a pay-as-you-play deal and has been used at left-back by George Burley.

He started seven games for the Eagles, but rumours had surfaced in recent weeks that he was ready to call time on his spell at Selhurst Park.

The 37-year-old has now confirmed he will be leaving Burley's strugglers and has thanked the club for the opportunity.

Great experience

"Today I have decided that my journey as a player of Crystal Palace FC has come to an end," said Davids on his official website.

"I want to thank all the people who supported me and gave me one of the greatest experiences of my life."

When Davids missed last month's 4-3 defeat at Preston North End, reports he had played his final game for the club began to emerge.

Burley later stated the former Ajax midfielder had missed that game due to a virus and he went on to start the 3-0 home defeat by Swansea City.

That appearance on 30th October proved to be Davids' last for Palace and he leaves the club bottom of the Championship table.
