Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal.

On Monday, we carried a report that the 21-year-old midfielder is set to join Crystal Palace and he has now completed his loan move to the Premier League side.

This is Loftus-Cheek’s first loan move since he made his Chelsea debut in a Champions League game against Sporting Lisbon in December 2014.

“I had the option of coming to Palace and I thought that it would be great for me,” Loftus-Cheek said.

“I live not too far away, I was born in Lewisham and Palace is good club so I thought it’s a good chance to play here and be a part of the team.

“They have a very strong team and I’d like to be a part of that this season.”
