Michy Batshuayi has joined Crystal Palace on a loan deal from Chelsea until the end of this season.

The Belgium international striker returns to Selhurst Park following a successful loan spell at the back-end of the 2018/19 season, where he scored six goals in 13 appearances for the Eagles.

Batshuayi, 26, netted twice on international duty for Belgium on Tuesday night before finalising his move back to south London, taking his international tally to an impressive 18 goals in 30 games. His club record stands at 120 goals in 325 senior appearances across several top divisions in Europe.

Batshuayi, who reclaims the Palace number 23 shirt, said: “I feel like I’m home now, so it’s good. But I need to do a good season here, to work a lot with my teammates and I want to do my best here.

“It’s not my first time here. I know the teammates, I know the gaffer, I know how the club works here. For me, it’s the best decision.

“I’m happy, the coach is happy, my teammates are happy. Let’s get to work.”
