Edgar Davids leaves English club Crystal Palace

Former Netherlands midfielder Edgar Davids says he is leaving

second-tier English club Crystal Palace less than three months

after signing.

The 37-year-old Davids gave no reason for the decision announced

Monday on his website, but says his time at the League Championship

club was “one of the greatest experiences of my life.”

Davids made seven appearances for Palace after coming out of

retirement in August. He was previously without a club for two

years after leaving Ajax in 2008.

Davids had signed a one-year contract with Palace and was being

paid only for the games he played.

The midfielder appeared 74 times for the Netherlands in a career

that also took him to AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Inter Milan

and Tottenham.
