Crystal Palace went into this summer needing to be one of the busiest sides in the transfer market, with a significant number of players out of contract and only a few of them likely to renew. With a focus on signing young players to bring the average age of the squad down, Palace made moves that saw nearly £60m spent. We've summed up all the transfer stories in one place.
Michael Olise -- Attacking Mid -- Reading -- £8m -- COMPLETED -- With Eze injured for 6 months at least, Palace have signed Reading youngster Michael Olise on a 5-year contract for a bargain £8m fee, the result of the club triggering a release clause in his contract. Olise, who predominantly plays with his left foot, has impressed at Reading in the Championship, scoring 7 goals and creating 11 in 44 league games. Palace confirmed his signing on the 8th of July.
Remi Matthews -- Goalkeeper -- Free Agent -- COMPLETED -- 27-year-old Former Sunderland and Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Matthews has signed a two-year deal with Palace, with the player taking Stephen Henderson's role as third-choice goalkeeper in the side.

Adler Nascimento -- Forward -- Peterborough -- Compensation -- COMPLETED -- Peterborough United have confirmed that their 16-year-old attacking player Nascimento, who made his first-team debut with the side last season, has signed for Crystal Palace and that they will be seeking to negotiate compensation. While Palace haven't confirmed this move, the young Portuguese striker featured briefly in Palace's Under-23 side as they won 5-0 against Dulwich Hamlet.
Hitlist of Players Not Signed
Definitely Not Happening
Borja Mayoral -- Forward -- Real Madrid (via Roma) -- Loan -- ROMA COULD NOT FIND REPLACEMENT -- 24-year-old Spanish striker Mayoral has looked at his options at Roma, with whom he is currently in the second year of a two-year loan move, and wants to move following Roma's signing of additional striker options. Any move requires Real Madrid to recall the player, and for Palace to then sign him. The matter is further complicated by Roma wishing to keep the player. Having scored 17 goals for Roma last season, he'd bring a much-needed clinical edge to Palace's front line.
Jeremie Boga -- Winger -- Sassuolo -- £20m -- NO CONTACT MADE -- Nope. Palace have had no contact with Sassuolo despite reports.
Abdallah Sima -- Forward -- Slavia Prague -- £10m -- SIGNED FOR BRIGHTON -- Signed for Brighton. That is all.
Ryan Christie -- Attacking Midfielder -- Celtic -- £6m -- SIGNED FOR BOURNEMOUTH -- The Celtic midfielder appears to be in discussions with Bournemouth about a move to the south coast, a move prompted by his contract nearing expiry.
