A deadline-day capture from Wigan Athletic in September 2014, McArthur signed a three year contract with Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee and made his Eagles debut in a goalless draw against Burnley. Capped 16 times by Scotland, the midfielder began his career with Hamilton Academical where he spent five years before making the move south of the border to Wigan Athletic in July 2010. He played a major role in keeping the Latics in the Premier League during his time there, and played the full game as Wigan shocked Manchester City in the final to lift the 2013 FA Cup.
