Nathaniel Clyne has joined Crystal Palace on a short-term contract, returning for a second spell at Selhurst Park after eight years away.

Clyne was released by Liverpool, who he joined from Southampton in 2015, earlier this year. 

The 29-year-old is reunited with Roy Hodgson, under whom he won 13 of his 14 England caps. 

"I'm a London boy, this is where I grew up. I'm back home and all my family and friends are here," Clyne told the club's website.

"It's surreal being back, enjoying it and hopefully I can just crack on and enjoy my football again."

Palace have six points from their opening four Premier League matches, with victories over Southampton and Manchester United followed by back-to-back losses against Everton and Chelsea. 

Clyne could make his second debut for the club against rivals Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday (AEDT).
