Marouane Chamakh has joined Crystal Palace in a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old striker featured 67 times for Arsenal in his three years at the Club, scoring 14 goals.

After joining the Club in May 2010 from French side Bordeaux, Chamakh enjoyed a bright start to his Gunners career – finding the net on 10 occasions before Christmas in his debut season, but found first team opportunities limited in his second and third terms.

A Morocco international with 21 caps for his country, Chamakh spent the second half of last season on loan with West Ham United, making three appearances for the Hammers.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Marouane for his contribution to the Club and wish him well with the Eagles.
