Crystal Palace have completed the signing of defender Marc Guehi from Chelsea

Guehi has agreed a five-year deal and becomes Patrick Vieira's second signing as Palace manager.

"It’s a great opportunity for me to come to such a big club in the Premier League," Guehi told the club's official website.

“[The club is taking] a really exciting direction with the new gaffer that’s come in. A lot of good young players are here and obviously such a stable club with top players really enticed me and made me want to come.”

Guehi is a 21-year-old centre-back who has represented England at youth level. In 2017 he captained his country as they won the Under-17 FIFA World Cup.

He spent last season on loan at Swansea City, making 40 league appearances and helping them reach the Championship playoff final.  

Guehi will hope to make his Premier League debut when Palace kick off their 2021/22 campaign at his former club Chelsea on 14 August.
