With minutes to go in the 2017 January transfer window, Palace just about squeezed in the loan signing of Sakho from Liverpool until the end of the season.

Sakho, 26, has made 80 appearances for the Reds since signing from French giants Paris Saint-Germain back in September 2013. He had made over 200 appearances for his hometown club before making the move to the Premier League, having won the Ligue 1 title, the Coupe de la Ligue, Coupe de France and the Trophee des Champions during his time at the Parc des Princes.

The 28-capped France international has also featured in the Ligue 1 Team of the Year in  2010/11 when he was also named the division’s Young Player of the Year, having won his first cap for Les Bleus in a friendly against England in November 2010 and later featured for them in the 2014 World Cup.
