Lee had hoped for new Palace contract
Alan Lee, in the final year of his Palace contract, said that there had been no sign of any talks about new terms with Crystal palace.
'It has come us a huge surprise,' Lee told the South London Press. 'In the last couple of weeks I was hoping to earn another contract at Palace but then I got wind they had accepted a bid from Huddersfield.
'Once a club does that and the manager and chairman both agree to it then you can't hang around.
'I'm lucky that I had a good club like Huddersfield in for me. They are going places and a lot of people in football that I've spoken to recently have said what a good team they are. I'm viewing this as a positive thing -I want to go somewhere that I'm wanted. I know the manager has tried to buy me before and I'm really looking forward to it.'
