Puncheon set for permanent Palace switch

4:22pm Thursday 30th January 2014

On-loan Saints midfielder Jason Puncheon is expected to seal a permanent move to Crystal Palace.

The Daily Echo understands the winger is set to move to Selhurst Park on a full time basis before the transfer window closes for a fee of around £1.75m.

Puncheon has been a hit since joining Palace on loan this season and is now seen as surplus to requirements at St Mary’s.

He has enjoyed a turbulent time since joining the club in 2010.

After a good start under Alan Pardew he fell out of favour and was sidelined by Nigel Adkins, getting loaned out to the likes of Millwall, Blackpool and QPR.

Puncheon made a Saints return but asked for the loan to Palace for personal reasons at the start of the season and new Eagles boss Tony Pulis is now set to complete a deal to make him a permanent signing.
