London - New Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has signed Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on loan until the end of the season, the Premier League club confirmed on Tuesday.

The French Under-21 striker is Pardew's first signing since he succeeded Neil Warnock at Selhurst Park.

Pardew told the club's official website: "He's a young player with tremendous promise, somebody that I have tracked personally and this club has too so that fitted well."

The 21-year-old Sanogo joined the Gunners at the start of last season from Auxerre and featured in their FA Cup final win over Hull in May.

"When the Arsenal manager spoke with me about Crystal Palace I was very happy because I want to play more games," said Sanogo.

"I think Palace are a good team, I watched the game against Tottenham and it was a great performance from the guys. I hope I can help the club have a successful second half of the season."

Pardew made the perfect start on his return to Crystal Palace by overseeing a 2-1 comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

It was a first win in nine league games for Crystal Palace who are sixth from bottom of the Premier League one point above the first relegation spot.

Pardew added: "We have given him an opportunity, he needs to play more games and I think he's ready for that and he proved that at Arsenal. It's tough to get in their team but he's closer to the starting action with us."
