FORMER Crystal Palace and Cardiff City ace Jordon Mutch has found a new club - South Korean side Gyeongnam FC.

But social media was sent crazy by his unveiling, where he is holding up a clenched fist along with two club officials and the team's mascot.

 Former Cardiff and Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch has joined South Korean outfit Gyeongnam FC

Gyeongnam's nickname is apparently 'The Fisters' which goes some way to explaining the cringe-worthy, Anthony Joshua-esque unveiling.

Equally as bizarre is Mutch's choice of outfit. He is wearing ripped jeans, scruffy trainers and has the Gyeongnam shirt with the number 80 over the top of his grey jumper.

The combination makes him look like a supporter heading down to the ground to cheer on his team in autumn - too warm for a jacket but too chilly to go without the jumper underneath.

And users on Twitter did not hold back in their mocking.

Freelance journalist Will Unwin tweeted a picture and joked: "Ex-Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch has joined South Korean side Gyeongnam FC - does look like he’s doing a boxing press conference ahead of his bout with the mascot, mind."

TalkSPORT's Gary Taphouse added: "Former Cardiff, QPR and Crystal Palace Jordon Mutch looking thrilled to have joined Gyeongnam FC in South Korea."

Mark O'Brien tweeted: "What's Korean for ... keep the receipt?"

While @YourBuddyHarry screengrabbed his dad's response to the news which was: "He looks like an old overweight tramp."

Other hilarious comments included "warm arms, cold knees" and "did he get those shoes from lost property?"

The midfielder, 27, left Selhurst Park by mutual consent in January following loan spells at Reading and Vancouver Whitecaps.

His Palace contract was set to expire at the end of the season after signing a four-and-a-half-year deal to join from Queens Park Rangers in 2015.

And after Vancouver passed up the chance to make his spell in Canada permanent, Mutch headed to the Far East to try and resurrect his career.

He played for the academies at Derby and then Birmingham and represented England Under-17s, U19s, U20s and U21s.

Gyeongnam finished second in the K League last year, 21 points behind champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, earning automatic qualification into the Asian Champions League group stages.
