Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Will Hughes from Watford.

The former Derby County midfielder has signed a three-year deal at Selhurst Park, and becomes Patrick Vieira's sixth signing of the summer.

“Fans want to see players give 100% and that’s the minimum I’ll give," Hughes told PalaceTV following the move. That’s what they can expect…[Palace are] planning for the future and it’s exciting times ahead.

They’re not just planning for the here and now, which is obviously important, but they’ve got a big project going on here so it’s exciting to be part of it.”

Hughes made 118 appearances for Watford after joining from Derby in 2017, scoring eight goals. He featured 30 times for the Hornets last season as they secured automatic promotion back to the Premier League.

The midfielder joins Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen in signing permanent deals in south London this summer.
