Striker Andrew Johnson has re-joined Crystal Palace after being released by Queens Park Rangers last season.

The 33-year-old's first spell at the Premier League club was between 2002 and 2006, during which he scored 85 goals in 160 games.

He also helped the club win promotion to the top flight in 2003-04.

"I am delighted to be coming back to a club that I love and have a real soft spot for," said Johnson, who has signed a short-term contract.

"I have also been given an opportunity to help the youngsters in a coaching capacity, something I am really looking forward to getting involved in."

The former Birmingham, Everton and Fulham forward won eight caps for England, having been called up for the first time by ex-coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.
