Eagles make ‘come to bed eyes’ at speccy star

Former Spurs and Ajax ace Edgar Davids, aged 37, is apparently in line for a shock move from the footballers’ retirement home to Crystal Palace.

Davids was approached by Leicester to shuffle out of retirement in October of last year but a short term deal could not be reached.

According to various reputable and non reputable media sources, the veteran midfield enforcer will be signing a ‘pay as you play’ deal which would probably suit hard up Palace just fine.

Davids has not kicked a football in anger for about two years, but his experience is something that this youthful Palace side are short of. Additionally, the revenue that would no doubt be generated through ticket and shirt sales would be welcome at a club that was on the verge of being wound up by HM Revenue and Customs several months ago.

However, manager George Burley appeared to be slightly less spirited by the rumours, merely quoted as saying:“There is nothing definite about Davids. He has a home in London and has started talking about playing again.”

Nailed on then.

    First of all thank you for taking the time to read the article.

    Could you possibly expand your comment a bit more? I’m slightly at a loss, are you telling me CPFC are now the paragon of fiscal prudence?

    It’s also a bit patronising to hyperlink practically every noun used in the post!

    The people who read this will be football fans and probably don’t need to find out who Spurs, Ajax, Crystal Palace, Edgar Davids, Leicester City and George Burley are…

    To me, it shows quite a lot of arrogance.

    Also, he was most iconic at Juventus, which you seemed to ignore completely.
