Crystal Palace have made their first signing of the January transfer window with the capture of Erdal Rakip on loan until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old midfielder moves to Selhurst Park from Benfica and could make his Premier League debut against West Ham United on 30 January.
“I believe this is a league that suits me and my way of playing,” he told Crystal Palace's official website.
“It’s fast-paced and physically intense, and I’m a classic, balanced number six; a box-to-box player who runs up and down the field.”
Rakip, a Swedish Under-21 international, came through the ranks at Malmo in Sweden and played 120 times for the club before moving to Benfica earlier this month.
