Cenk Tosun has joined Crystal Palace on loan from Everton for the remainder of the season.
Tosun, 28, had not been expected to feature in new Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and was keen to secure regular first-team football.
The Turkey forward has made minimal impact at Goodison Park since he was signed by Sam Allardyce in a £27m deal from Besiktas in January 2018.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson had previously registered his interest in Tosun.
“We’re delighted to have secured Cenk’s services,” Palace chairman Steve Parish said.
“We’ve enjoyed a great first half of the campaign and Cenk’s arrival will bolster our squad as we push for a top-half Premier League finish. Cenk has a proven record as a goalscorer and we’ve admired him for some time.”
Tosun has scored once in eight appearances in all competitions for Everton this season, taking his tally to 10 in 51 games.
He is available to play for Palace as they host tenth-placed Arsenal – the team directly below them – in the Premier League on Saturday.
Real Madrid have signed Belgium forward Eden Hazard from Chelsea on a five-year contract.
The 28-year-old will be presented as a Real player on 13 June, subject to passing a medical at the Bernabeu.
Hazard scored 110 goals in 352 games for Chelsea after joining from Lille in 2012, and scored twice as they won the Europa League final last week.
“The memories he leaves us with will not fade,” said Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.
“He provided all who watched Chelsea play with great entertainment and many match-winning contributions, and for that we thank Eden enormously.
“He has been a model professional throughout his time at the club, a wonderful individual to have around and a joy to work with.”
