February 3, 2017
London club Crystal Palace have signed Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho on loan for the rest of the season.
Palace will pay a £2m loan fee plus wages for Sakho, who made 56 appearances for Liverpool.
Liverpool wanted £20m for Sakho, with Southampton, Swansea, Galatasaray and Sevilla all thought to be interested in the centre-back.
Palace will be hoping the signing of Sakho will secure their Premier League status. Palace remain in the bottom three despite beating Bournemouth 2-0 on Tuesday night.
