Last updated : 04 September 2004 By Nik Taylor
Palace had a hectic transfer deadline day, completing three more signings before the window closed.

Iain Dowie sealed the transfers of Nicola Ventola and Gonzalo Sorondo from Inter Milan, as well as Wayne Andrews from Colchester.

Uruguayan defender Sorondo, 24, has signed on a one-year deal and will compete with Danny Granville for the left-back position.

The 26-year-old Ventola is a striker who has previously played for the Italian Under-21 side. He has scored 21 goals for Inter and has also signed on a one-year deal.

The third signing is of 26-year old striker Wayne Andrews. He joins the club on a two-year contract. Andrews was top-scorer for Colchester last season with 11 goals. Gareth Williams has moved to Layer Road as part of the deal.
