Crystal Palace has signed Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea on a season-long loan deal, the Premier League club said on Thursday.

The 26-year-old returns to Selhurst Park, where he scored six goals in 13 appearances during a previous loan spell in the second half of the 2018-19 season.

“He made a great impact at the club in his previous loan spell… displaying a goal scoring threat we very much needed at that time and we’re confident he will produce again,” Palace manager Roy Hodgson said in a statement.

Palace, which finished 14th last season after scoring only 31 league goals, has also bolstered its attacking options by bringing in Eberechi Eze from Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
