Manchester City striker Alex Nimely has joined Championship high flyers Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old, who has previously had loan spells at Middlesbrough and Coventry, becomes Ian Holloway’s first signing since taking over at Selhurst Park in November.
Speaking after completing his move Alex told the club’s official website: “I’ve played against Blackpool and Crystal Palace a couple of times so I think the manager has been watching me for a long time so when he gave me the call to come here I was very happy to.
“I met the manager and he’s fantastic. His philosophy is great as he wants to play good football and help the young players improve.”
Meanwhile his new manager Ian Holloway added: “I’ve admired him for a couple of years, I like his movement, skill and his tenacity. I want him to play for us and get some goals and hopefully he’ll do that.
We wish Alex the best of luck throughout his loan period.
