Michy Batshuayi joins Crystal Palace on loan

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi returns to Crystal Palace on a season-long loan.

The Belgian striker had a successful loan spell at Selhurst Park in the second half of the 2018/19 season.

He scored six goals in 13 appearances for the Eagles and helped them to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The 26-year-old told the official Palace website: “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.”

Chelsea said of the move on their official website: “Batshuayi’s latest loan move sees him return to the south London club where he spent four months in the first part of 2019, scoring six goals in 13 appearances.

“Palace’s league season starts at home to Southampton on Saturday, before they travel to Old Trafford a week later.

“As a consequence of Batshuayi’s move, Billy Gilmour will now take the 23 squad number at Chelsea for the 2020/21 campaign.”
