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