Freedman: Looking forward to developing exciting striker Pedroza

Championship outfit Crystal Palace have finally confirmed the signing of Antonio Pedroza on a three-year deal.

International clearance has now been granted for the 20-year-old striker, with an undisclosed fee to be paid to Mexican club Jaguares.

The striker had been on trial with the Eagles for a month before earning a deal, with the paperwork for the move completed before the transfer deadline on 31st August.

Palace boss Dougie Freedman is now looking forward to working and developing the young prospect.

"For a very small fee we have got a great prospect who with hard work could become an important part of our squad for years to come."

He told the club's official website: "I'm pleased to have brought another exciting young player to this club.

"For a very small fee we have got a great prospect who with hard work could become an important part of our squad for years to come."

Chester born Pedroza, who has an English mother and a Mexican father, added: "I feel very happy to be here.

"It's really nice to have a chance to prove myself in English football. I'm happy to be at a great club like Crystal Palace with great fans."

The highly-rated striker, who had most recently been playing for Jaguares, trained with Palace after seeing a proposed move to Tottenham Hotspur fall through earlier in the summer.
