Crystal Palace technical coach David Kemp says he is “delighted” with the business the club has already done on transfer deadline day – and hinted that there could be more to come before the window slams shut at 11pm tonight.
Jason Puncheon’s loan move from Southampton was turned into a permanent deal this morning, while Wales international goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey joined the Eagles from Wolves.
Both players were signed before midday, which means both are eligible to face Arsenal on Sunday.
Taking over the media duties from manager Tony Pulis, Kemp said: “We’re delighted obviously to do those deals, but we are still trying to do some more.
“It’s ongoing. I’m not in those negotiations right now, so I can’t tell you what stage we are at with anything.
“I don’t expect anything. Football’s a funny game, especially on this day in particular, a lot seems to go on. This club is no different from any other.
“I’d like to sit here and announce we’ve done this, that and the other, but at the moment I can’t do that.
“It’s difficult because we’ve got to focus on Arsenal on Sunday, and you have all this going on as well. It’s a strange time of the year, it’s a strange day!”
