Palace sign Arsenal striker Fonte

Crystal Palace have signed Arsenal's teenage striker Rui Fonte on loan, initially for one month.

Fonte, 18, the younger brother of Palace defender Jose Fonte, is a former Portugal Under-17 international.

The former Sporting Lisbon player, who joined Arsenal in 2006, will go straight into the squad for Saturday's home match against Blackpool.

Fonte made his first-team debut for the Gunners in the Carling Cup victory over Wigan in November.
