He played 28 times in 18 months with Norwich, scoring twice. His goal in the 2-1 Premier League defeat at Fulham in March was the 100th of his career.

Palace manager Dougie Freedman said: “Aaron is a player who brings with him experience of playing at the top level and one I am hugely looking forward to working with. I’m confident he will greatly improve the side and will be valuable in helping our younger squad members improve their own game as time goes on.”

  • Good to hear he has found a place - honest professional who, as has been said, probably suffered from a system. OTBC

  • If Crystal Palace get promoted, can he put on his Terminator face and say, "Alby back"

  • Thinking about it most managers seem to get a bit pedantic and stick to a formation or with certain players when there are better options available, and I think Wilby was left on the bench because of this. What little I did see of him he looked the business and with more playing time could have formed a useful partnership with Holty.

  • I wonder if he`d been a year or two younger, we might have kept him? Thought he was very effective, though he didn`t get to play or score that often. Palace had Chris Martin on loan last season-a new strike partnership, maybe? Anyway, good luck Aaron.
