The left-back, who can also play as a central defender, has signed a three-year deal at Selhurst Park after spending a solitary season at White Hart Lane.

Fryers, who began his career at Manchester United, started just three league games for Spurs.

"I found out over the weekend from my agent that there was interest and I knew Crystal Palace were the best club for me at this time of my career," Fryers told Palace's official website.

"I am very excited to be here and it's a fresh start for me now. I can't wait to get out on the training pitch and show what I can do.

"I have met [manager] Neil Warnock this morning and we had a good chat about the game and things on and off the pitch. I am really looking forward to working with such a great manager and getting to know my new teammates."

Fryers became Warnock's second summer signing after Wilfried Zaha, who returned to Selhurst Park on loan from Manchester United.

Palace had been looking for a left-back since releasing Dean Moxey and Jonathan Parr in the summer while Fryers became surplus to requirements after Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino signed Ben Davies to provide competition for Danny Rose in that position.

Spurs have also sold centre-back Michael Dawson this summer while Gylfi Sigurdsson went to Swansea in part-exchange for Davies.
