The Norway international has joined the Eagles on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Danish outfit FC Midtjylland and he has become the second most expensive Norwegian of all time after Tore Andre Flo.
The 22-year-old will certainly head to Selhurst Park in good form after netting 10 goals during the first half of the Danish Superliga season and he admits it is a dream come true to have completed his move to the Premier League.
“It’s a big club with ambition,” Sorloth told Palace TV. “It’s a good club who takes good care of its players. “It feels amazing, it’s a dream come true to play in the Premier League. I’ve dreamt about this since I was six years old.
“My short-term aim is to try and get my debut as quickly as possible. Show my skills on the training ground – and hopefully the manager likes what he sees.”
Sorloth was Palace’s only new arrival on deadline day, with the club missing out on other reported targets such as Lille captain Ibrahim Amadou and Brondby goalkeeper Fred Ronnow.
