Just seen this:
CRYSTAL Palace boss George Burley is set to wrap up his second transfer of the summer tomorrow - with the capture of former Southend United defender Adam Barrett.
The South London Press understands that the 30-year-old centre-back has agreed terms on a move to Selhurst Park and a deal should be completed before the weekend.

Wow

As I've mentioned in another post, good luck to Barrett, I wish him well.

He was out of his depth in the Championship with us though. Think he may well struggle.

I hope he gets a nice wooly hat to keep him warm on the bench.

He could do well there. Not a massive uproot in terms of geography, and part of a rebuilding process there. I hope he does well.

I will be surprised if he holds a first team place. During our playoff season and championship winning year he was outstanding but always thought the champonship was a step too far and since dropping back has not looked massively safe at the back. No coincidence that our best run of defending came with Dervitte arriving and Barrett moving from the centre. Who knows this seaso whether his poor form has been money related or just football? Has been a terrific servant to the club and would have done a job in league 2 but on the downward curve now so surprised to hear this move. Good luck to him - seemed to play with heart which has been well appreciated.
