LUFC Ward completes Palace move

Leeds United summer target Joel Ward has finally put pen to paper on a deal, signing for fellow championship side Crystal Palace.

Leeds had been long time favourites to sign the versatile 22 year old from Portsmouth after he held negotiations with the club almost three weeks ago.

The main stumbling block for Leeds is reported to have been the transfer fee, believed to be in the region of 450,000.

Cash strapped Portsmouth wanted the full fee up front whilst it is reported that Leeds could not afford to pay for Ward in one whole payment.

Palace have also beaten off competition from Ipswich Town, Burnley, Sheffield Wednesday and Blackpool for the signature of Ward who can play in defence or midfield.

Leeds have managed just one signing since the end of last season, with Ward`s former teammate at Portsmouth Jason Pearce joining the club.
