Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Norwegian international striker Alexander Sorloth.

The 22-year-old striker signs from FC Midtjylland in Denmark, and put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal.

He scored 15 goals and provided 9 assists in 26 games for the Danish club this season, and has 12 international caps and one goal for Norway.

Talking about his move to the Eagles with the Official Palace website he said: "It's a big club with ambition, a good club who takes good care of its players. It feels amazing, it's a dream come true to play in the Premier League. I've dreamt about this since I was six years old."

Sorloth, who will wear the number 9 shirt, talked of his ambitions for this season: "My short term aim is to try get my debut as quickly as possible, show my skills on the training ground - and hopefully the manager likes what he sees."

Watch Sørloth's first interview as a Palace player.

Despite the transfer of Sorloth, it has been another disappointing transfer window for the Eagles, as they failed to secure the signing of a third goalkeeper, and other rumoured deals failed to materialise.
