Chairman revels in Batshuayi deal
Crystal Palace club chairman Steve Parish feels the club have secured a real coup by landing the Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
The 25-year-old has agreed a loan move to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the Premier League campaign, after completing his switch late on deadline day on Thursday.
Parish was delighted to get a deal over the line and feels Belgium international Batshuayi will be an important figure for the club for the remainder of the campaign.
"This is a fantastic signing for Crystal Palace," said Parish.
"Michy is a player we've long admired, and I'm delighted that we've finally managed to get him in a red and blue shirt. He will be a magnificent addition to our squad."
