Eagles seal double swoop
11 Aug 2008 - 16:30:21
Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has snapped up the former Reading winger John Oster and IF Elfsborg midfielder Leandre Griffit on free transfers.
Both players have signed contracts that will keep them at Selhurst Park until January, and Warnock is pleased with his day's work.
The veteran boss said: "I think the squad is still a little thin on the ground and John gives us that little bit of experience especially away from home.
"He keeps hold of the ball and looks to get past his marker and get crosses in, so it gives us other options about where to play Sean Scannell and some of the other lads.
"With Leandre, he's a player that has been recommended to me and has just come to us until Christmas.
"He's a very positive lad. He likes to run at people, plays left, right or in behind the striker and is just a good acquisition really."
