Crystal Palace Academy pair Fionn Mooney and Jadan Raymond have signed professional contracts with the club.

The two players - who turned 17 last week - have been with Palace since Under-11 and Under-9 levels respectively, each earning international minutes this year for England Under-17s. Mooney is also eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland and Raymond has featured for Wales.

Speaking with Palace TV after putting pen to paper, Mooney said: "It is a proud moment for me, my family and everyone that has helped get me to where I want to be today - the smile on their faces is just awesome and I'm looking forward to the future."

Raymond echoed his teammate's comments, adding: "I grew up in South Norwood, so I've always seen the stadium from my bedroom window and heard the crowd chant.

"Back when Palace were in the Championship, when I was eight or nine. I saw Zaha, you know, just doing his thing and it is a great feeling to know that I am part of that now."
