Crystal Palace winger Jason Puncheon has completed a move to Huddersfield Town on loan.
Huddersfield Town boss Wagner was delighted to have captured the pacy winger’s services from Crystal Palace, albeit on loan. “I’m sure many of our supporters know about Jason from his years playing in the Premier League,” said Huddersfield head coach David Wagner. “It is important that our additions in January have the ability to arrive and make an immediate impact in our team, which I’m sure Jason can. He has played in this division for nearly a decade now and knows what it takes to be successful.”
“As well as being a very good player, he is a great character. He has been the captain of Crystal Palace and is a real leader in the dressing room, which is something we wanted to add too. He’s now totally fit after the knee injury that he suffered last season and he’s been very keen to come here and show that he is still capable of performing at the top level, which is great news for us. I’m really excited about working with him to help him understand our way of play.”
Puncheon has made most of his impact at Palace coming on from the bench due to the presence of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend at the club.
