Crystal Palace new boy Dwight Gayle is adamant that he will be able to handle the task of playing in the Premier League next season following his £4.5m move from Peterborough United.

New Crystal Palace signing Dwight Gayle is confident that he will be able to handle the pressure of playing in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old joined Ian Holloway's side for a fee in the region of £4.5m from Peterborough United after just six months at London Road.

"I'm going to handle it because I think the people around me will keep my feet on the ground," he told Sky Sports News.

"It's difficult to deal with all the attention I've been getting but I should be fine."

Gayle scored 13 goals in the Championship last season for The Posh.
