“This is a fantastic signing for Crystal Palace," said Palace chairman Steve Parish.
'Michy is a player we’ve long admired, and I’m delighted that we’ve finally managed to get him in a red and blue shirt. He will be a magnificent addition to our squad.”
The club is also still alive in the FA Cup after taking down Tottenham in the Fourth Round behind goals from Andros Townsend and Connor Wickham.
