The club has high-level players who are young and I have come here to follow their same trajectory, to grow as they have grown,” Riad said in a club statement.

Riad was born in Palma de Mallorca to Moroccan parents and progressed through the island club’s development system before relocating to Barcelona and graduating from the La Masia Academy.

He made only one appearance for the Barcelona first team.

He has three senior caps for Morocco, debuting against Sierra Leone in January and scoring his first international goal against Congo this week.

Riad is Palace’s first arrival since the transfer window began on Friday.
