2 min read

Crystal Palace have completed a deal for Lyon defender Joachim Andersen, for a fee believed to be around €22 million with €5m in add-ons.

The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Fulham in the Premier League and has signed a five-year deal for the club.

The Athletic reported a deal for Andersen was close on Sunday afternoon and he had undergone a medical.

Andersen told the club website: “I’m extremely proud to be joining Crystal Palace and to be playing in the world’s best football league.

“The management of the club and Patrick Vieira have given me very strong assurance that they know my qualities, they believe in me and want me to play an important role in the team. I have a very positive impression of Patrick from the conversations I have had with him, and I have heard nothing but great things about the manager, the club and its plans for the future.”Palace have acted quickest and capitalised on Lyon’s financial difficulties to agree a price with the French top division side that is below the fee it is believed they were hopeful of achieving.Palace have continued their eye-catching recruitment drive since installing Vieira as their new manager.

The impressive acquisition of Andersen follows the arrivals of midfielder Michael Olise, goalkeeper Remi Matthews and centre-back Marc Guehi.Andersen spent the season at Fulham and made a strong impression despite their relegation from the Premier League, leading to the likes of Tottenham considering a move for him.

He played 31 games for Fulham in 2020-21 and helped his country to the Euro 2020 semi-finals.

Andersen started his professional career with FC Twente before joining Sampdoria and then Lyon.
