Crystal Palace have signed midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp from Leicester on a four-and-a-half year deal.
The Ghana midfielder leaves the Premier League champions to join the Eagles’ relegation scrap in a reported £12million transfer and is the first major signing for new Palace manager Sam Allardyce.
German-born Schlupp came through the Leicester youth ranks and helped the club secure a shock title success in May 2016, but the 24-year-old winger has seen his chances of regular action with Claudio Ranieri’s side limited this season.
