Crystal Palace have signed winger Bakary Sako on a three-year deal.
The Malian winger has joined The Eagles on a free transfer after his contract at Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers expired earlier in the summer.
Sako started his career with Chateauroux in the French Ligue 2 before joining St. Etienne in 2009.
“I talked to some clubs but when I met Alan Pardew, I felt a good feeling between him and me and that’s why I chose Palace,” Sako said.
“He plays attacking, attractive football so it should be good to play here and score some goals, that’s why I came to join him.”
Sako scored 36 goals in 118 appearances last in three years at Wolves, following his arrival for £4m.
He was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year as Wolves won the League One title in 2014.
They were however denied a shot at back-to-back promotions to the English top flight as Wolves missed out on the play-offs by goal difference in the 2014-15 campaign, but Sako made the PFA team of the year again.
He has been capped 14 times by Mali at senior level and scored six goals.
