The signings just keep coming thick and fast today with the news that Crystal Palace have snared French international goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.
Mandanda, who is part of France’s Euro 2016 squad, has left Marseille after nine seasons and 443 appearances to join Palace on a three-year contract.

L’Equipe are reporting that Palace have parted with €2million to get their man, despite him being out of contract.
Mandada is still only 31, vastly experienced (four-time Ligue 1 goalkeeper of the year, no less) and a solid stopper – most of the time, anyway…
Whatever the weather, we can’t help but feel that Palace have got themselves a bit of a bargain here.
