Palace won the race to sign Ince on loan from Blackpool in January and he made a big impact on his debut, netting a goal in a 3-1 win over West Brom.

The young winger has been forced to wait patiently for first-team appearances in recent weeks, but Pulis remains keen to secure his services if Palace stay in the Premier League.

"He's one that we'll look at once things are done," said Pulis.

"I'd love to sit down and get something done with him because I think he's a top player.

"Tom has been absolutely fantastic. He will be a top Premier League player, without a shadow of a doubt. He's got all the attributes and everything else.

"The unfortunate thing is that in the position Tom plays, Jason Puncheon has been outstanding and Yannick Bolasie's been outstanding."

The Eagles boss believes the 22-year-old has benefitted from his time at Selhurst Park, despite spending a number of games on the sidelines.

"His attitude in training has been fantastic, and the players have taken to him as well," said Pulis.

"I think that's great credit to Tom. I think it's a part of his career that he will look back on and take a lot of stuff from.

"It's not gone to plan in respect of him playing every game but his attitude has been fabulous."

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
