Crystal Palace Football Club can confirm that Jason Puncheon has joined the club on a permanent deal from fellow Premier League side Southampton.

Puncheon, 27, has been on loan at Selhurst Park from the Saints since August, making 20 Premier League appearances and scoring three goals – all of which have come since the turn of the year. 

After an impressive spell in SE25, the deal for the winger has now been turned into a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.

Puncheon, who has also played for the likes of MK Dons, Plymouth Argyle and enjoyed loan spells at Millwall, Blackpool and QPR during his career, has penned a four and a half year deal at Palace, which ties him to the club until June 2018. 

He said: "It's great to sign a permanent deal, it's something I dreamt about when I was a kid so I'm pleased to get it done. I was here when I was eight years old when the likes of Dean Gordon and Chris Armstrong were here so that makes its special.

"The massive factor in this was the chairman and the manager, the gaffer has shown great faith in me since he's been here and that's been unbelievable for me. 


"It's a boost for me mentally - I thought it might happen at the end of the season but it's come quicker and obviously that's good for both me and the football club."
