Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony revealed the news on his official Twitter account and Boyd will now discuss personal terms with Palace.

MacAnthony tweeted: "We have agreed terms with Crystal Palace for the transfer of George Boyd tonight. The player will now talk terms with Palace.

"It's obviously sad news for us at Posh but we couldn't turn this opportunity down for the player.

"Many clubs have made bids which in truth were verging on taking the mick, however CP have backed their manager & met our terms today.

"George has been a Palace fan all his life & now has chance if he joins them to help them get promoted to Premier League.

"We have had nearly 7 years of Boyd talent to enjoy & I hope he now gets to strut that talent in Prem next year if he does leave Posh."

Boyd, 27, joined Peterborough from Stevenage for £260,000 in January 2007 and has since made almost 300 appearances for the club.

Meanwhile, Peterborough have cancelled the contract of left-back Scott Griffiths by mutual consent.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
