Osman Sow has explained his late signing by Crystal Palace.

Palace only announced late last week that Sow had been added to their squad after impressing in preseason trials.

"Shortly after I signed my contract, I injured a ligament in the knee so right now I'm hurt, that's why the club did not introduce myself before. I'm not back until December or January.

"Then, it may be that I will be loaned for one or two months in January," Sow told Fotbolltransfers.com.

The Swede has signed a 12-month deal with Palace.
