Alan Pardew says that Crystal Palace will try to sign two more players this summer.
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page that he wants to sign two more players before the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
Palace have recruited three players so far this summer: former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain, England Under-21 international forward Patrick Bamford a season-long loan deal from Chelsea and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy from Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers.
Pardew has now stated that the Premier League club still plan to add more players to the current squad.

Big season ahead
Palace are an ambitious club and should be aiming for a top-10 finish in the Premier League next season.
It will not be easy, though, but given the progress the team made under former Newcastle boss Pardew last season, the fans should be hopeful.
If Pardew gets the players he wants and the team make a strong start to the season, then Palace could go on to have a successful 2015-16 campaign.
