Done deal: Mamadou Sakho leave Liverpool on a loan deal

Mamadou Sakho join Crystal Palace on loan
Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season.
Sakho, who has spent much of the season playing with Liverpool’s under-23s, was banished from the first team by manager Jurgen Klopp after a breach of club rules during a pre-season tour of America.
Liverpool were desperate to offload Sakho in a permanent deal but refused to budge on their £20million valuation of the Frenchman and since allowed Sakho to leave on a temporary basis to link up with Sam Allardyce’s side.
It is believed that Crystal Palace will pay Sakho’s wages in full and have stumped up an initial £2million loan fee.

Earlier in the week the 26-year-old defender revealed the details of his bust-up with Klopp and accepted the mistakes he has made at Anfield.
‘It is true that I turned up late. There was a rule that I should have observed. I do not at all see myself as above the rules, I respect everyone,’ he said.
‘I paid my fine, I was sanctioned, I apologised to my team-mates and my manager. Aside from that… I do not want to go into the controversies.’
Sakho, who joined Liverpool from Paris Saint Germain for £18m in September 2013, was hit with a drugs ban at the end of last season but saw the ruling overturned on appeal.
