"The transfer is primarily related to my family, but of course it is great to play in England again at the end of my career," Iversen tells local Trondheim daily Adresseavisen.

Iversen is married to ex pop star Anna Crane, and their oldest child has begun school in London.

"I've got a very good impression of Crystal Palace. Everything seems good so far. I have not met the players yet, but both the manager (George Burley) and his assistant have made a terrific impression," Iversen states.

The striker is set to sign a contract expiring June 2012 with the Championship club.
