Crystal Palace has brought in Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda on a three-year deal.

The France international has signed on with the Premier League outfit for an undisclosed fee, bringing his nine-year association with Marseille to an end. Mandanda has already passed a medical with Palace and will join his new club at the end of Euro 2016.

"I'm delighted that we have been able to bring Steve into the club," chairman Steve Parish commented on the capture of the Frenchman. "He brings a wealth of experience at both club and international level to us, and boasts a proven track record when it comes to winning trophies. I'm sure the Palace fans will enjoy watching him in action for us over the next few years."

The 31-year-old started his professional career with Le Havre, before joining Marseille in 2007. He made over 400 appearances in all competitions for the club, winning the Ligue 1 title in 2009-10.

Mandanda's arrival comes on a busy Friday for Palace, which also bought Andros Townsend from Newcastle United for £13million, while Dwight Gayle went the other way for £10m.
