Michy Batshuayi completes Crystal Palace loan after Chelsea snub Tottenham

Michy Batshuayi completes Crystal Palace loan after Chelsea snub Tottenham

Crystal Palace have agreed a deal to sign Michy Batshuayi on loan in the final hours of the transfer window.

Chelsea are now looking to find a new home for the Belgian worldwide for the second half of the campaign and Batshuayi has been strongly linked with West Ham and Real Betis in recent days.

Real Betis are also believed to be interested in signing Batshuayi before 11pm this evening.

Palace had come close to securing the Belgian in the summer of 2016 when he was at Marseille having bid a club record fee in excess of £30m for his services, only for Chelsea to emerge late to trump that offer.

The striker, who had endured a hard first half of the campaign on loan at Valencia, has cost a loan fee of around £1m.

He has scored 19 goals in 53 appearances for the Blues, including the strike that crowned them Premier League champions away at West Brom in 2016/17.

The disease is contagious from approximately four days before the characteristic rash appears to four days after the rash appears. The outbreak near Portland has sickened 35 people in OR and Washington since January 1, with 11 more cases suspected.

"Spurs have decided not to pursue signing Michy Batshuayi on loan".

The formalities of the loan can be completed in Valencia, where Batshuayi signed papers terminating his unsuccessful loan stint earlier on Thursday.

However, he claims Tottenham have also expressed an interest in the 25-year-old.

Everton had been seen as the likeliest club to provide Chelsea with their preferred option of a permanent move for the Belgium striker.
