Both Lyon and Crystal Palace have made official this afternoon the transfer of Danish defender Joachim Andersen, who joins the Premier League on a permanent deal after spending last season on loan at Fulham.

The centre-back’s transfer fee consists of an initial €17.5m, which could rise to up to €20m with add-ons. The Ligue 1 side also have a sell-on clause of 12.5% on the 25-year-old’s future move.

Andersen had arrived in Lyon from Sampdoria in 2019 and played one full season with Les Gones before moving to London on a temporary basis last season, and also took part in Denmark’s Euro 2020 campaign this summer which saw the country reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
