- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
Huddersfield Town has completed the signing of midfielder Jason Puncheon on loan from fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
The versatile left-footer adds genuine Premier League experience to Town’s midfield, having appeared in almost 200 games in the top flight for Palace, Southampton, Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers.
He joins the Terriers until 30 June 2019 inclusive and will wear the number 42 shirt at the Club.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“I’m very happy that we are able to welcome Jason to Huddersfield Town.
“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.
“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.”
