Swindon Town have signed midfielder Alassane N'Diaye on an emergency loan from Crystal Palace.

The 21-year-old will stay with the League One outfit until 20 April.

The Frenchman has made 13 appearances for the Eagles this season and agreed the deal to join the Robins after training with them on Monday morning.

"I know Alassane from my time at Palace last season and he has all the attributes to do well for us," manager Paul Hart told the club website.

"He is a big lad with a great engine and a quality player. We are delighted to have him on board."

N'Diaye is the second Palace player signed by Hart in a week after striker Calvin Andrew joined on loan last Thursday.
