Crystal Palace: Odsonne Edouard

Odsonne Edouard has joined Crystal Palace from Celtic for £14m. The Frenchman has signed a four-year contract with an option of an additional year. The fee could rise up to £18.5m with add-ons. The striker will wear the No 22 shirt for the club.

“I’m very happy to be here today.” Odsonne Edouard said after completing the move to Crystal Palace. “I can’t [wait] start to train with the team and to play for this club… Scoring goals in the Premier League may be the biggest challenge in my career. But I’m confident in myself and my teammates to be successful.”

“Odsonne is a player of proven quality. He was a player in high demand and I’m delighted he chose to join Crystal Palace as another fantastic addition to our squad.” Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish said.

Meanwhile, West Ham has completed the signing of Alex Kral on loan from Spartak Moscow. The young midfielder will join his former Slavia Prague teammates, Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.  West Ham will have the option to make the move permanent next season. Kral has 22 international caps to his name and was part of the Czech Republic squad at Euro 2020.

“He will provide good competition in the center of midfield.” West Ham boss David Moyes said. “He is another young, talented player who we feel has a big potential and will be capable of adapting to the demands of the Premier League.”

“We’ve brought him in on loan initially and, hopefully, over the course of the season he will make a valuable contribution, particularly with our busier schedule of fixtures,” he added. “Alex is another established international player with the Czech Republic, and we hope he has similar characteristics and hunger to that of Tomas (Soucek) and Vladimir (Coufal).”
