Malian forward Bakary Sako has joined Crystal Palace on a three-year deal after his contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers expired, the Premier League club announced.
Sako, 27, joined Wolves from Saint-Etienne in 2012 and scored 36 goals in 118 league appearances for the club, starring as they won the English third-tier title in 2013/14. He followed that up with 15 goals last season as the Midlands club narrowly missed out on a place in the Championship play-offs.
"He plays attacking, attractive football so it should be good to play here and score some goals. That's why I came to join him. I've been doing my own pre-season training because Wolves gave me a programme before I left, and my cousin has a small academy so we trained together to keep my fitness levels up."
Born in Paris, the left-footed Sako has played 14 times for Mali, scoring six goals.
