Benteke completes Palace move

Belgian leaves Liverpool to make switch to Eagles

Christian Benteke has joined Crystal Palace for £27 million, becoming the most expensive signing in the Eagles' history.

The 25-year-old leaves Liverpool to pen a four-year deal with the South London club.

The fee could reportedly rise by a further £5m.

Benteke said: "I'm very happy to commit my future to Crystal Palace."

The Belgian scored 10 goals for Liverpool, having joined the Reds from Aston Villa for £32.5m in July of last year.

Benteke has made 26 appearances for his country's senior team, scoring six times.

Palace had already signed Andros Townsend, James Tomkins and Steve Mandanda during the summer transfer window.
