Crystal Palace snap up Lazio midfielder Daichi Kamada on free transfer

Japan attacking midfielder Daichi Kamada has reunited with manager Oliver Glasner after signing with Premier League side Crystal Palace.

The two-year deal, which is subject to international clearance, comes into force following the end of Kamada's contract at Serie A side Lazio.

Kamada, 27, previously played under Glasner at Eintracht Frankfurt, where he recorded 40 goals and 33 assists in 179 appearances.

"I'm excited to be joining Crystal Palace, and to be working with Oliver - who is a coach I know well - again," Kamada told the club website.

"I am looking forward to testing myself in the Premier League, and hopefully the club and I can achieve all of our objectives together."

Eagles chairman Steve Parish said: "Daichi is a truly exceptional talent. He has been one of Europe's best attacking midfielders in recent seasons and his experience, technical quality and commitment mark him out as an excellent addition to our already talented squad."

Kamada becomes Palace's second summer signing following the arrival of Morocco international Chadi Riad.
