Edgar Davids signs for Crystal Palace

Edgar Davids is in for a culture shock after coming out of retirement to sign for Crystal Palace.

For a man who has adorned many of the world’s most famous stages — having won the Champions League with Ajax as well as league titles in both Holland and Italy — the surroundings of Scunthorpe United’s Glanford Park will be something of a comedown when he makes his Palace bow today.

Davids became George Burley’s first signing after a transfer embargo was lifted.
