Crystal Palace confirm third signing of the summer as defender joins

A change of direction at Crystal Palace

The revolution at Crystal Palace under former Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira is well underway. After releasing several key players earlier in the transfer window, they have opted to rebuild the side with youth at its core.

As a result, Michael Olise was purchased from Reading, and Marc Guehi was fast tracked from Chelsea’s reserved into the first-team squad at Selhurst Park following an impressive loan spell at Swansea.

Both are expected to play a big part next season, joining the likes of Eberechi Eze and Tyrick Mitchell as young prospects in south London.

Andersen the latest signing

And now, it appears as though Palace have found their partner for Marc Guehi, with the club announcing the signing of Joachim Andersen from Olympique Lyon. The centre-back, once on the radar of Arsenal, was on loan at Fulham last season, making 31 appearances for the Cottagers.

Despite his impressive performances, the 25 year old was not able to prevent Fulham from being relegated from the Premier League, making a return to Craven Cottage this season impossible.

As reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano reports, this has led the Danish international to put pen to paper on a five year deal at Selhurst Park instead, where he will form the backbone of Vieira’s new look Palace side.

As for the fee for the defender, it is thought to be around the 20 million pound mark, although there is no confirmation of this.

Are Palace having one of the best windows of any Premier League side?
