    Crazy Twist in the Transfer Saga: Crystal Palace Snags Jefferson Lerma on a Free!

    Huge news coming out of Selhurst Park today as Crystal Palace confirms the signing of Colombia international, Jefferson Lerma. The 28-year old midfielder will join the Eagles for free on July 1st when his contract with Bournemouth expires.

    A Proven Performer at Premier League Level

    Lerma is no stranger to the Premier League. He started an impressive 37 games for Bournemouth in the 2022-23 season scoring five goals along the way.

    The Colombian has amassed a wealth of experience at both club and international level, having scored 12 goals in his last 99 top-flight appearances for Bournemouth, while also earning himself an impressive total of 183 games during his stay with The Cherries.

    Endearing Nature Will Make Him Popular Among Fans

    “I am very happy and excited by this new opportunity,” said Lerma. “I want to help with every objective that the club has next season.”

    Chairman Steve Parish believes that he will be a strong addition to their squad, saying: “Jefferson is a proven performer at Premier League level, and his combative and competitive nature will endear him to Palace fans.”

    Filling Big Shoes Left By Milivojevic And McArthur

    This transfer comes just as captain Luka Milivojevic and James McArthur leave upon expiration of their contracts leaving big shoes for Lerma to fill up in the midfield.

    It is not yet clear who will be in charge of Crystal Palace next season, with Roy Hodgson still expected to step down following his short-term contract.

    The signing of Lerma marks a great start for the Eagles as they prepare for their 11th consecutive season in the top flight.
