Crystal Palace have signed Republic of Ireland international Cherelle Khassal from Chichester City on a two-year deal.

Khassal scored 18 goals in all competitions last season and manager Dean Davenport revealed his excitement in Palace securing her signature.

“I’m really pleased to have captured the signature of Cherelle, Davenport told the club’s website. There are some really good players in the Women’s Premier League and Cherelle is at the top of that list. I now feel the time is right to give Cherelle the opportunity to step up and use her qualities at Crystal Palace.

“We are building for a strong team and all being well, we will be looking to challenge for a top half finish – watch this space!”
