Crystal Palace are set to sign Jason Puncheon on a permanent basis from Southampton.

The 27-year old winger joined the Eagles on a season-long loan on the summer and has impressed so much that the south London club have offered him a less temporary deal.

Reports suggest that the Saints have agreed a £1.75million fee with Palace for the former Blackpool and QPR loanee who is contracted at St Mary's until 2016.
