Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey, has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Crystal Palace, after signing a permanent deal.

The Welsh stopper has moved to the Premier League outfit for an undisclosed fee after a decade of service at Molineux.

Despite losing the 27-year-old, who turned out 166 times for the club, Chief Executive Jez Moxey said:

"Wayne has been with the club for a long time since coming through the academy and produced some excellent performances... If we received an acceptable offer from a Premier League club, then we were not going to stand in his way... Everyone at Wolves would like to thank Wayne for his efforts."
