Crystal Palace have acquired Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho on loan until the end of the season.
The Eagles have reportedly paid a £2million loan fee for his services and will also pick up his full wages while he is at Selhurst Park.
Sakho, 26, has been frozen out of the Liverpool side after he was sent home from the Reds' summer tour to the USA for breaching club rules.
"It is true that I turned up late," he revealed this week. "There was a rule that I should have observed. I do not at all see myself as above the rules, I respect everyone. I paid my fine, I was sanctioned, I apologised to my team-mates and my manager."
The French international was ordered to play with Liverpool's under-23s and manager Jurgen Klopp wanted to offload him for around £20million.
But with no bids matching that figure, Klopp let the centre half leave on loan.
He joined from Paris St Germain for £18m in September 2013 and was a regular in the Pool side, where he became a big favourite of The Kop.
