Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season. 

The England international, who has made 32 career appearances for the Blues, is Frank de Boer's first signing since taking charge last month. The 21 year old has been loaned out to Palace as Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants him to gain more experience at a Premier League club. 

On joining the Eagles, the England U21 international said, -Palace have a very strong team and I'd like to be a part of that this season.  Loftus-Cheek made three league appearance when Chelsea won the title in 2014-15 and six substitute appearance when they were champions again in 2016-17.

De Boer's side begin their season with a home fixture against promoted Huddersfield Town on 12 August.
