Crystal Palace have signed Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on loan until the end of the season, the Premier League clubs have confirmed.

Palace completed the deal for the 25-year-old Belgium striker minutes before the transfer window closed on Thursday.

Batshuayi, who arrived at Chelsea from Olympique de Marseille in 2016, made 20 appearances in the London club's 2016-17 Premier League title-winning campaign.

He netted one goal in 15 La Liga appearances during a loan spell at Valencia in the first half of this season.
