Crystal Palace have secured the permanent signing of Jason Puncheon from Southampton, according to Sky Sports.

Puncheon has been on loan at the Eagles since the start of the season, and has impressed manager Tony Pulis enough to convince the Selhurst Park outfit to open their cheque book and secure the 27-year-old’s services on a permanent basis.

The midfielder has signed a four year contract at the club after scoring winning goals against struggling Stoke and West Ham in recent weeks.

Speaking to Palace’s official website, Puncheon – who grew up an Eagles fan – 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 it 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.

“It's a boost for me mentally. I thought it might happen at the end of the season but it's come quicker and obviously that's good for both me and the football club.”

Puncheon signed for Southampton in 2010, and scored eight goals in 65 appearances for the south coast club. He also spent time out on loan during that spell, with Millwall, Blackpool, QPR and Palace.
