Crystal Palace have signed Nathan Ferguson on a three-year deal.
The 19-year-old right-back joins on a free transfer after his contract at West Brom expired, though the south London club will have to pay compensation.
Palace desperately needed new, young recruits as they have the oldest team in the Premier League.
He said on the club’s official website: “It’s great to be here. Crystal Palace is a great club in my opinion, and I feel like there’s a lot that I can bring to the team. I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.”

Ferguson looked set to complete a move to Palace in the January window but a medical flagged up a knee problem which needed surgery.
Eagles chairman Steve Parish said: “Nathan is a fantastic signing for us, a player we’ve been committed to for a long time.
“He is hungry, focused, has a great attitude and he’s got an abundance of talent. It’s been a challenging six months for Nathan, and I’m genuinely so pleased for him that we have finally secured his services.”
