Remi Matthews has agreed a two-year deal to join English Premier League club Crystal Palace as the former Hamilton goalkeeper secures a big transfer.

Matthews was well-liked at Accies after a successful season in South Lanarkshire during the 2016/17 season. He has since been with clubs such as Bolton Wanderers and left Sunderland at the end of last season. He now joins Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace until 2023, where Matthews will likely be the third-choice goalkeeper.

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish said of the ex-Hamilton keeper: “Remi brings plenty of Football League experience with him, and we are really pleased to add him to our goalkeeping ranks.

“He will continue to develop under the tutelage of Dean Kiely, alongside Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland.”
