Pardew excited by Crystal Palace investors

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has welcomed the impending arrival of new American co-owners at the club, report the Daily Mail.

The Eagles are set to see Stateside duo David Blitzer and Josh Harris purchase an 18% stake in South London, which is equal to current co-chairman Steve Parish.

The businessmen have other sporting ventures, as they also share ownership of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.

Pardew has backed their arrival, and suggested it could see further cash injection to boost the club in the transfer market.

‘If you’re a Crystal Palace fan, it’s good news for you. This is Palace going forward with the possibility of a new stadium, new facilities and new investment in the team’, revealed the 54-year old.

Over the summer, the Selhurst Park club smashed their transfer record in order to sign Yohan Cabaye from PSG for around £10m.

The French international played under Pardew at Newcastle and has impressed for the club since arriving from the Ligue 1 giants, in what was a hugely surprising move.

Pardew, however, has insisted that there won’t be major upheaval as a result of the pair’s arrival in the boardroom.

‘We won’t change tactically from what we did last summer. We have good players and we will need to inject one or two good buys in there.’
