Palace complete swoop for Chamakh

Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.

Chamakh has joined the Barclays Premier League newcomers after competing a medical, and will wear the number 29 shirt.

The 29-year-old France-born Morocco international has signed a one-year deal with the Eagles.

Chamakh, who joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Bordeaux in 2010 and scored 14 goals during his time at the Emirates Stadium, had a spell on loan at West Ham at the end of last season.

He is the third striker to join the Selhurst Park ranks this summer, following the arrivals of Kevin Phillips and Dwight Gayle.

Palace start their campaign at home to Tottenham on Sunday.
