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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
