London:

Premier League new boys Crystal Palace on Wednesday signed attacking midfielder Jason Puncheon on a season-long loan deal from top-flight rivals Southampton.

The 27-year-old previously played under Palace manager Ian Holloway at Blackpool and becomes the 10th new player to arrive at Selhurst Park during the current transfer window.

"I actually played for Crystal Palace as a kid when I was eight," Puncheon told the Palace website.

"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."
