Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock will try again to sign Hogan Ephraim from West Ham when the transfer window re-opens in January.

The Palace boss failed in a bid to sign the pacy midfielder on the last day of the emergency loan window last week but is still keen on him.

Ephraim recently returned to Upton Park after a loan spell at QPR where he played 13 games, starting eight, and scored twice including notching on his last match for the Loftus Road club against Hull.
