Crystal Palace have completed the permanent signing of Mamadou Sakho from Liverpool on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The centre-back returns to Crystal Palace after spending a successful loan spell at the Eagles last season, which saw him feature eight times, helping Palace claiming 16 points during that period which played a huge part in their successful battle against relegation last term.
Speaking about his return to SE25, Sakho said: “I am really happy to be here because I have some friends here. I loved the challenge last year; it was difficult but beautiful and it’s why this summer I thought that Palace was the best choice.
“I am really excited about playing for the Palace fans again, but in football the past is the past and you need to think about today and tomorrow. Last year we did a good job and we need to prove that again and have a good objective. If we put all of our power together, we will have a great season.”
