Chelsea striker Loic Remy has left the club and will spend the remainder of the season at Crystal Palace, the club has announced.
The 29-year-old knew that he would have struggled to enjoy regular first-team football at Stamford Bridge after the arrival of Michy Batshuayi who has been in fantastic form so far for the Blues.
The Frenchman was delighted after the transfer was completed and says he is looking forward to again work under manager Alan Pardew.
"This is a very good chance for me and a big opportunity," he told Crystal Palace's official website.
"It was very important to know Alan Pardew as he is a very good manager and I am happy to be here."
Manager Alan Pardew added: "Loic has been a target of mine throughout this transfer window and I'm delighted the deal has been done.
"I brought him to Newcastle so I know what he is capable of and I am convinced he will be a quality addition to our squad as we evolve.
"Loic has international and Champions League experience as well as being a Premier League title winner and is the latest example of the high calibre of players we have brought into the club during this transfer window."
