Kevin Phillips joins Crystal Palace

Kevin Phillips has joined Crystal Palace from Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.

Commenting after completing the deal Kevin added: “Blackpool were approached three or four weeks ago about a club taking me on loan and the club let me know I was available to go. I spoke to my agent and then I had a conversation with Ian Holloway and in the last 24 hours it’s picked up again and he’s someone I know well. We obviously got on really well at Blackpool.

He brought me in at a time when not too many people were looking for someone for my age, I repaid him with 17 goals and helping them to the play-offs so it was a gamble that paid off. I think I can still do a job, he knows that and that’s one of the reasons he’s brought me to the football club.”
