Eagles swoop for Dindane

27 March 2013

Crystal Palace have completed the singing of former Portsmouth striker Aruna Dindane.

The Ivory Coast international, 32, has joined the Eagles until the end of the season having left Qatari side Al-Sailiya in December.

The forward scored 10 goals in 24 games during his last spell in English football, helping Pompey reach the 2010 FA Cup final.

His new boss Ian Holloway told the club's official website: "I am hoping he returns to what I have seen him play like before.

"Aruna has been training with us and we have seen what was needed to get him up to our level of fitness, so very quietly behind the scenes we have been working with him to get him to the condition that we want.

"He's very strong and a goalscorer and I know what he can bring to us if he is in the right condition.

"I would like to thank the chairman for giving me the chance to bring him in and we will see what he can do for us."
