He said: “I’m very happy, I feel a lot of joy and a lot of pride to be a Palace player. I’m proud to be at Palace today.”


Pre-season Panic seems to start earlier every year like a really sh*tty Christmas


The 22-year-old becomes Palace’s third signing of the summer following the previous arrivals of Malcolm Ebiowei and Sam Johnstone.

Chairman Steve Parish added: “Cheick’s arrival is yet another statement of intent, demonstrating our ambition to further improve the squad this summer.

“We are extremely confident that Cheick will adapt seamlessly to the rigours of the Premier League and that he will contribute positively to the squad, and I wish him all the very best for his time with us.”
