Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth has joined RB Leipzig on a permanent transfer.

The Premier League club said the deal is subject to international clearance.

Sorloth, 24, joined Palace in January 2018 from Danish club Midtjylland for a reported £9million fee.

But the Norwegian made just four Premier League starts in his 20 appearances for the Eagles, with his solitary goal coming in a Carabao Cup tie at Swansea.

Sorloth had loan spells at Gent and Trabzonspor before moving to the Bundesliga.
