Las Palmas have signed French and Chelsea striker Loic Remy on a two-year contract, the La Liga club announced on Thursday.

Remy, 30, had one year left on his deal with Chelsea but arrives in Spain on a free transfer after the Premier League champions allowed him to leave.

A statement from Las Palmas said: “UD Las Palmas have signed France international defender Loic Remy, who has signed a contract for the next two seasons with the the amarillo club after reaching an agreement with Chelsea.

“Remy passed a medical on Thursday in London.

“The new Las Palmas player is flying to Gran Canaria from London and is expected to arrive tonight to the island.

“He will join his new team in training tomorrow before being unveiled at 1pm on Saturday.”

Las Palmas were keen to strengthen their attack following the surprise departure of Kevin-Prince Boateng earlier this month.

Boateng, who had scored 10 goals in 28 league appearances last season, left the Canary-based outfit after citing “personal reasons” before joining Eintracht Frankfurt.

Injuries have seen Remy play only 32 Premier League games for Chelsea.

Remy, who joined Chelsea from QPR in 2014 after a successful loan spell at Newcastle, was keen to leave Stamford Bridge this summer in search of more playing time.

The former Lyon and Marseille forward endured a disappointing 12-month loan spell at Crystal Palace last season, making only five league appearances after injuring his ankle in training last September.
