Crystal Palace have signed striker Michy Batshuayi on a season-long loan from Chelsea with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the period.
The 26-year-old, who struggled for playing time under Frank Lampard, has also extended his contract with Chelsea till 2022. Crystal Palace have an option to buy for an unspecified fee.
In 2020-2021, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham were Frank Lampard’s first choice forwards, with Batshuayi playing only for 226 minutes.

“I feel like I’m home now, so it’s good. But I need to do a good season here, to work a lot with my teammates and I want to do my best here,” he said
“It’s not my first time here. I know the teammates, I know the gaffer, I know how the club works here. For me, it’s the best decision. I’m happy, the coach is happy, my teammates are happy. Let’s get to work.”
