Cape Town - Crystal Palace have completed the signing of defender Jaroslaw Jach on a three-and-a-half-year contract from Polish top-flight side Zaglebie Lubin.

The 23-year-old has spent his entire career in Poland, starting out at Lechia Dzierzoniow before moving to Lubin in 2013. Jach has made 78 appearances for Lubin, who are fifth in the domestic league.

"This is a dream come true because the Premier League is the league I have followed since I was little and I have always wanted to come and play here," Jach told the press, according to Sky Sports.

"I hope I will be able to help Crystal Palace stay in the Premier League and perhaps achieve bigger successes.

"I am coming here to fight for the first team squad and play regularly. I know this club is able to help me go to the World Cup in Russia."

Jach, who has two caps for Poland, is Palace manager Roy Hodgson's second signing of the January transfer window after loanee Erdal Rakip.

Palace will be hoping their new signings make an immediate impact when they travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham in an English Premiership clash on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 21:45 (SA time).
