Donkomi: Crystal Palace sign Joachim Andersen from Lyon

Crystal Palace have completed a deal for Lyon defender Joachim Andersen, for a fee believed to be around €22 million with €5m in add-ons.

The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Fulham in the Premier League and has signed a five-year deal for the club.

Andersen told the club website: “I’m extremely proud to be joining Crystal Palace and to be playing in the world’s best football league.”

Crystal Palace have undertaken a extensive rebuild of their squad releasing numerous players whilst signing exciting prospects Michael Olise, and Marc Guehi.

Crystal Palace will kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to European champions Chelsea on Saturday, August 14th.

It’s another good day in the premier league with all these new faces, we hope he performs as he did in his formal team , because premier league can make and ruin you.

Oh at least Crystal palace is far better than Lyon. Anderson can play in the premier league and get the hype that comes with it. Five year deal is not bad at all for the 25 year old.

Who told you? Olympique Lyonnais is one of the most successful clubs in Ligue 1, France. Lyon had great players like Memphis Depay who currently signed at Barcelona. Lyon will score Crystal Palace more than you can count if the two teams should meet. Why do we tend to value Premier League clubs than the rest of the clubs? Don’t underestimate them, they are dangerous.
