The 26-year-old can aid his personal ambitions at Selhurst Park during this temporary spell, while helping Sam Allardyce’s side avoid relegation

Mamadou Sakho has completed a loan move to Crystal Palace until the end of the season, banking Liverpool a £2 million fee.

The defender has not made a senior appearance since April 20 last year after first fighting a UEFA doping charge before Jurgen Klopp grew tired of his transgressions.

The Eagles will assume full payment responsibility for Sakho’s wages and will hope the process of getting him fully match sharp will be speedy, considering the centre-back’s only outings were for Liverpool’s Under-23s this season.

Palace ousted Swansea and Southampton to wrap up temporary terms for the player, who had also been the subject of enquiries from West Brom, Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Galatasaray. 

Liverpool would’ve preferred to get Sakho off the books permanently, but no suitors were willing to match their £20m valuation.
