The Ivory Coast international was a free agent following his release from Qatari outfit Al-Sailiya Sports Club in December.

The 32-year-old has won 67 caps for his country, scoring 11 times, and spent five years with French side Lens.

Palace boss Ian Holloway told the club's official website: "Aruna has been training with us and we have seen what was needed to get him up to our level of fitness.

"So very quietly behind the scenes we have been working with him to get him to the condition that we want. I am hoping he returns to what I have seen him play like before.

"He has been working hard to reach those levels and if he can do that he might add something to the group that could help us in the weeks to come.

"He's very strong and a goalscorer and I know what he can bring to us if he is in the right condition.

"I would like to thank the chairman for giving me the chance to bring him in and we will see what he can do for us."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
