Manchester City youngster Alex Nimely has joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who has made five appearances for Attilio Lombardo's u21 side this season, enjoyed loan spells at Middlesbrough and Coventry last season.

The Liberian-born frontman was named on the bench by Roberto Mancini for City's 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in December.
