Crystal Palace announced a surprise move for West Ham Cheikhou Kouyate in a £9.5 million transfer.
The move for the 28-year-old Senegalese international is expected to kick off a series of moves this week as the Eagles await international clearance on a free transfer for former Schalke midfielder Max Meyer. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace has also reportedly scheduled a medical for Swansea City forward Jordan Ayew with Jairo Riedewald possibly going the other way. Said Kouyate after four years in East London: "This is the right time to move because I needed a new challenge. I have good memories of West Ham but I need to come here and give my best because I like the Crystal Palace project. I spoke to the manager and I know he'll be a good manager. I also spoke to Pape Souare yesterday and he told me I had to come and now I'm here and I'm very happy." Aug 2 - 4:27 AM
