Williams joined Ipswich on a one-month loan deal on Thursday, having failed to make a Premier League start for the Eagles this season.

The 20-year-old Wales international is lacking in match fitness, according to Pulis, and he says Palace may look to extend his loan with Ipswich.

"When I first came in Jonny had an injury," said the Palace boss. "He looked a bit rusty and in need of games.

"To be fair to him, he's trained a lot better during the last couple of weeks, and we needed to get him out to get some games.

"It had to be a club and a manager that we were happy with and Ipswich fit the criteria on both counts. It's a fantastic football club that has fantastic facilities and great support, and Mick McCarthy is a very good manager who will look after him.

"Johnny needs to play games. Whether we extend his loan we will decide in a month's time. Does he have a future at the club? He has a massive future at this football club."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
