McArthur thankful to be a Palace player

Scotland midfielder James McArthur is looking to put a stressful period behind him as he focuses on the clash with world champions Germany.

It was a stressful time for me over the last five or six days but thankfully it's over now.

I wouldn't say it's enjoyable until you get that signed and know what your next stage is. But it's over now and I'm thankful to be a Crystal Palace player.

It's massive to be back in the Premier League. That's where every top player wants to play and I'm the same. I want to test myself against the best players.

Palace tie up Doyle loan move

Crystal Palace have completed their third deadline day swoop by completing the loan signing of Wolves striker Kevin Doyle.

The Republic of Ireland international ended last season on loan at QPR whilst his parent club were gaining promotion back into the Sky Bet Championship.

Doyle, 30, has yet to turn out for Kenny Jackett's side this season but has joined Palace until January to bolster Neil Warnock's attacking options at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace have agreed a new club-record £7million fee with Wigan for midfielder James McArthur, Press Association Sport understands.

Leicester City had agreed a £7million deal for Scotland midfielder McArthur but pulled out of the deal after snaring Esteban Cambiasso instead.

Palace will break the £4.5million paid to Peterborough for striker Dwight Gayle last summer if they now complete the deal for 26-year-old McArthur as expected.
