Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is delighted with their swoop for Southampton winger Jason Puncheon.

Puncheon has joined Palace on a season-long loan.

He said: “Jason can play in four different positions and will help. But he is a totally different player to Wilf. He is jinky and twisty while Wilf gets the ball and runs with it. When you get a player with experience in, then you get a lift as a squad.

“Whatever happens you need to land that blow to knock someone out. I believe Puncheon can do that. He is the right character and is a fighter. He has turned his career around and I like that mentality.”
