Soccer-Former England defender Cahill leaves Palace

(Reuters) – Former England defender Gary Cahill announced on Sunday that he had left Crystal Palace after two seasons at the Premier League club.

The 35-year-old centre back played 47 games in all competitions for Palace since joining them on a two-year contract in August 2019 as a free agent after being released by Chelsea.

“After much thought and deliberation, I can confirm that I have left Crystal Palace FC after an enjoyable two years,” Cahill tweeted https://twitter.com/GaryJCahill/status/1421789431716057088.

“It’s been a privilege to play at Selhurst Park, especially in that first season where I got to experience the atmosphere that the Eagles fans create on a match day.”

Cahill did not indicate what his future plans were.

He had 61 caps for England between 2010 and 2018.
