Jordan Ayew has joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan from Swansea.
The 26-year-old passed a medical with Premier League side late on Deadline Day and was confirmed as a Palace player shortly before the extended 7pm deadline.
"I am very pleased to be here. It's been a long transfer window but finally I got a move," said Ayew.
"The important thing for me now is to get fit and to be in good shape, and I know the manager wants to use me up front and make things happen.
"The manager, chairman and sporting director all made an effort for me to be here today, so I have to thank them. I am looking forward to playing with the boys and meet the fans, and hopefully it'll be a good season.
"I chose to come to Palace to continue improving. It's a step up for me and I'm ready for the challenge and to get to where I think I can get to."
Ayew top-scored for Swansea last season with 11 goals but was unable to prevent the Welsh club from being relegated to the Sky Bet Championship.
