Wagner hails Puncheon deal
Huddersfield boss David Wagner says he can't wait to see Jason Puncheon in action after he completed his loan move from Crystal Palace.
Puncheon, 32, whose four Premier League appearances for Palace this season have come off the bench, is Huddersfield's second January signing following the arrival of defender Jaden Brown from Tottenham.
"I'm very happy that we are able to welcome Jason to Huddersfield Town," manager David Wagner said in a statement.
"It is clear that we want to add quality and options to our midfield areas in this January transfer window and I'm sure many of our supporters know about Jason from his years playing in the Premier League."
The midfielder, who has made almost 200 appearances in the top flight for Palace, Southampton, Blackpool and QPR, will stay at Huddersfield until June 30.
"As well as being a very good player, he is a great character," Wagner said.
"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."
