Jason Puncheon: Loan move to Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Jason Puncheon on a season-long loan deal from Barclays Premier League rivals Southampton.

The 27-year-old winger played under Ian Holloway during a loan spell at Blackpool and has moved to Selhurst Park until the end of the current campaign.

During a nomadic career Puncheon has represented no less than 11 clubs, the majority of which were on loan deals similar to that which has now seen him become Palace's 10th summer signing since winning the Championship play-off final in May.

"I actually played for Crystal Palace as a kid when I was eight,'' he told Palace Player.

"I left and there were a few times in my career that I was due to come back but didn't. Now I'm here that's the main thing. I've always as a young kid dreamed of playing at Selhurst Park, so it's a young boy's dream coming true.

"I know Ollie [Holloway] really well. He was a massive factor in this move. He knows the league. He's done it before and I think he will learn from his time at Blackpool and bring it into the team here.''

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
