Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is hoping he's made the club a more attractive proposition for transfer targets.

He is crossing his fingers that the combination of London life and the fact Palace have climbed out of the bottom three will aid his recruitment drive.

"It is obviously a help (being out of the relegation zone)," said Pulis ahead of the New Year's Day match at home to fellow strugglers Norwich City. "I hope London will be a key factor as well. It is one of the great cities, if not the greatest city, in the world.

"My concern is to bring players in better than we have already got."
