Ebere Eze joins Crystal Palace

EBERE Eze has left QPR to join Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has agreed a five-year deal with the Eagles.

QPR CEO Lee Hoos said: “Ebere has been fantastic to deal with throughout this entire process and I speak for everyone at the club when I wish him every success going forward.

“This transfer comes at a very important time for the club as we face so much uncertainty amid unprecedented economic times.

“While dealing with their own business challenges, the shareholders have continued to financially support the club in order to safeguard its status.

“While we recognise there is a need to invest in the squad, we will continue our ethos of looking to bring in young, hungry, unpolished gems who can develop with us."

QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand added: “You never want to lose one of your best players but the situation dictates that it’s necessary so that we can, ultimately, grow and progress.

“I have no doubts Ebere will go on to enjoy a fantastic career in the game at the very top level.

“Allied to his natural talent, Ebere is an incredibly motivated, determined and humble individual and that is why there has been so much interest in him from Premier League sides.

“I am sure he would be the first to admit that he wasn’t the player he is today when he first walked through our door four years ago.

“His hard work, combined with the excellent coaching he experienced through all the stages of his QPR career, have helped him get to the next level and we are incredibly proud of him.”

Eze came to Rangers in the summer of 2016, initially agreeing a one-year contract.

After impressing at Under-23 level under the guidance of Chris Ramsey, Paul Hall and Andy Impey, Eze made his QPR debut in January 2017 in our FA Cup fixture at home to Blackburn.

Unfortunately, the young starlet lasted just 18 minutes before injury forced him off.

Eze joined Wycombe Wanderers on loan for the first half of the 2017/18 campaign, and it was during his spell at Adams Park that he really started to make a name for himself.

In 22 appearances he scored five goals - many of them stunners – and these, coupled with his all-round displays, demonstrated he was a player of real potential.

During his time with QPR, Eze made 112 appearances and scored 20 goals.

In his final campaign at the club, he netted 14 times and was named Supporters’ Player, Players’ Player and Junior Hoops Player of the Year.

Everyone at QPR thanks Ebere for his incredible service during his time with us and wishes him every success in the future.

 

This transfer comes at a very important time for the club.
