DEPARTED Blackburn Rovers captain Dann is looking forward to playing in the Premier League again after signing for Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee.

Dann, who has penned  a three-and-a-half-year deal with Palace, said: "It's been a long day and a long transfer window with a lot of speculation, so it's nice to finally put pen to paper and get it done.

"I'm looking forward to the next three-and-a-half years.

"Any professional footballer will tell you that they want to be in the Premier League.

"It's something I've done before and really enjoyed and having the opportunity to come and play here for the next couple of years, do well and help the team - it's something I really wanted to do and I'm glad that it's all gone through."
