Mamadou Sakho has joined Crystal Palace on loan till the end of the season, with Liverpool pocketing £2 million for the move.
The defender has had to fight a UEFA doping charge this season and is yet to make a senior appearance since April.
He now joins Sam Allardyce in Crystal Palace to revive his career and help the Eagles avoid relegation.
“It was really, really long for me and all my family [to wait for the deal to happen], but now I’m really happy to sign here because the project is really interesting,” the Frenchman told Palace TV.
“It’s a big challenge and I’ve come for that.
“The most important thing is we need to win a lot of games. I know this is a good squad and I have a few friends that play here and they called me tonight, like [Christian] Benteke.
“For me the objective will be to win.”
