London - Emmanuel Adebayor has joined Premier League side Crystal Palace until the end of the season, the club announced Tuesday.

"Crystal Palace are delighted to announce the signing of striker Emmanuel Adebayor until the end of the season," said a statement on the club's website.

Togo striker Adebayor, 31, was released from his contract at Tottenham Hotspur in September but will now move from the north London side to south London top-flight rivals Palace.

Adebayor first came to the Premier League when he joined Arsenal from French side Monaco.

He joined Manchester City in a £25 million deal during 2009 before loan spells at Real Madrid and Spurs ahead of his permanent move to White Hart Lane in August 2012.

Palace are currently 11th in the Premier League table.
