Since earning promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-off final back in 2013, Crystal Palace have made a number of shocking signings such as Emmanuel Adebayor, Kevin Doyle, Shola Ameobi and so on.
They have often been guilty of being stingy, but every so often, the Eagles have managed to secure a gem of a signing that has gone on to play a pivotal role in securing their Premier League status.
Palace have brought in the likes of Wilfried Zaha, signed for just a fraction of the price they sold him to Manchester United for, as well as some huge figures around the club in Jason Puncheon, James McArthur and Luka Milivojevic.

You would argue that Zaha is the obvious choice, but the role Puncheon has had in one of the south London side’s most successful periods is undeniable.
Without his goals in season 1, we go down. Without his creative spark in the 2nd, we go down. Without his goal against Norwich, we nearly collapse. His goal let us dream of winning the Cup.

Although he recently departed to Huddersfield, Puncheon scored vital goals which helped Palace survive a Premier League season for the first time in their history back in 2013/14, following that up with an FA Cup final goal which sparked scenes that some Eagles fans have described as the best moments of their Palace-supporting lives.
So, with that in mind, who is Palace’s best signing since their return to the Premier League? Have your say down below…
