          Former Crystal Palace youth academy product, Nathaniel Clyne, has rejoined the club on loan today on a short term deal following the expiration of his contract at Liverpool.

          Clyne was added to the long list of Liverpool signings from Southampton when he left the Saints after impressing between 2012 and 2013, joining Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool who was soon replaced by Jurgen Klopp months later.

          Clyne was Liverpool’s first choice right back throughout his first two seasons, making 93 appearances in all competitions alongside earning 14 England caps, but a combination of injuries and the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Clyne dropped out of favour before an uneventful loan at Bournemouth in 2018/19.

          And after a lack of football last season, London-born Clyne had been training with Palace for the past weeks, before signing a short term deal with the club he made 137 appearances eight years ago.

          On the deal Clyne said, "I’m a London boy, this is where I grew up. I’m back home and all my family and friends are here. It’s surreal being back, enjoying it and hopefully I can just crack on and enjoy my football again."

          Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish added: "Nathaniel is a fantastic character to have around this squad and we are delighted to secure his services for the upcoming period. He is a first-rate professional, just as he was when I first met him more than a decade ago. His presence and experience will be invaluable."
