Crystal Palace striker Aaron Wilbraham has welcomed the signing of Southampton winger Jason Puncheon.

Both players were at Milton Keynes Dons together for two years and they could line-up once again against Stoke City today.

"Jason's a great player," Wilbraham told the Croydon Advertiser. "He can dribble with the ball, he's got a great shot with both feet, and he can carry the ball for the team which is what we've been missing since we lost Wilfried Zaha.

"I think it's a great addition to the team, he's a really good player and I know him well.

"I think he'll be really good for us and he's going to be back home too. He'll enjoy that and coming to training every day."
