Crystal Palace have confirmed that Jason Puncheon has signed a four-and-a-half year deal.

Puncheon joined the Eagles in the summer on a season-long loan from Southampton, but the new deal will keep the winger at Selhurst Park until 2018.

The 27-year-old has bagged three goals since the new year, leading boss Tony Pulis to proclaim that he has the qualities to be a top class Premier League player.

Croydon-born Puncheon said: “It's great to sign a permanent deal, it's something I dreamt about when I was a kid so I'm pleased to get it done.

“I was here when I was eight years old when the likes of Dean Gordon and Chris Armstrong were here so that makes its special.

"The massive factor in this was the chairman and the manager, the gaffer has shown great faith in me since he's been here and that's been unbelievable for me.”
