Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of highly-rated starlet, Malcolm Ebiowei from Derby County, according to Daily Mail.
Ebiowei, 18, is widely regarded as one of English football’s leading young talents and has been the subject of major interest from England and abroad this summer.
Ebiowei had a breakthrough season under Wayne Rooney as he appeared 16 times for the first team. Despite the difficult circumstances at the club, the attacker shone brightly, netting once and assisting a further two.
His direct approach play and ability to beat a man was praised by all and sundry and it was a matter of time before the big boys came knocking considering the Rams’ relegation and financial woes.
It was widely reported that both United and Tottenham were tracking the versatile forward for some months now.
The Red Devils had even held talks with the player’s entourage recently in a bid to thrash out a deal.
