Wharton Makes Deadline Day Move

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Adam Wharton from Blackburn Rovers for a fee in the region of £18.5m.

The former LFE apprentice had taken the interest of many clubs since breaking into the Rovers first team last season, and this season had become one of the Championship sides’ most influential players.

Upon his arrival in south London, Wharton cited the Eagles’ track record of improving young players as the main contributing factor in his move.

“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League and to play for such a big club like Crystal Palace is a great honour,” Wharton said.

“The way they’ve brought players from the Championship and developed them into world-class players in the Premier League is something that stood out to me, and it’s a big reason why I wanted to come here.”
