Former Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has confirmed his departure from Crystal Palace.

The 35 year old centre-back joined Crystal Palace as a free agent after leaving Chelsea in the summer of 2019.

Confirming his exit from Crystal Palace, Cahill said: “After much thought and deliberation, I can confirm that I have left Crystal Palace FC after an enjoyable two years.

“I have really enjoyed my time at the club and I want to extend my sincere thanks to everyone involved at the club, especially the fans and staff who welcomed me into their South London family.

“It’s been a privilege to play at Selhurst Park, especially in that first season where I got to experience the atmosphere that the Eagles fans create on a match day.

“Playing in front of the Holmesdale Road stand is a memory that I will cherish in particular. I would like to wish the club all the best for the future and wish them every success for the coming season.”

Injury restricted Cahill to 20 top-flight appearances for the Eagles last season under Roy Hodgson, who was replaced as manager by Patrick Vieira early last month.
