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 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.
