Soccer-Clyne returns to Palace on short-term deal

Oct 14 (Reuters) - Crystal Palace have signed right back Nathaniel Clyne on a short-term deal, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Clyne returns to Palace after eight years, having previously played 137 games for the London club between 2008-2012.

The 29-year-old left Palace for Southampton, before moving to Liverpool where he was part of the squad that reached the Champions League final in 2018. He also spent half a season on loan at Bournemouth, joining them in January 2019.

Clyne left Liverpool when his contract expired at the end of June.

“It’s surreal being back, enjoying it and hopefully I can just crack on and enjoy my football again,” said Clyne, who has been capped 14 times by England. (Reporting by Manasi Pathak in Chennai Editing by Toby Davis)
