Crystal Palace are closing on a season-long loan deal for Chelsea striker Loic Remy, Sky sources understand.

The 29-year-old is yet to figure for Chelsea this season, with his chances of playing time at Stamford Bridge further limited by Michy Batshuayi's arrival over the summer.

Remy joined Chelsea in the summer of 2014 but the majority of his appearances have come off the bench, having made only nine starts in the Premier League since his move from QPR.
