LONDON (AP) -- Crystal Palace has signed Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh from Arsenal on a one-year deal.

The Premier League newcomer announced the arrival of the 29-year-old Chamakh on Monday. He's the third striker to join Ian Holloway's side this summer, following Kevin Phillips and Dwight Gayle.

The French-born Chamakh joined Arsenal from Bordeaux in 2010. He spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham.
