Tom Ince and Joe Ledley deals complete busy transfer deadline day for Crystal Palace
Ince joins on loan until the end of the season while Ledley is permanent
Crystal Palace concluded a hectic transfer deadline day by securing late deals for Tom Ince on loan from Blackpool and Joe Ledley on a permanent move from Celtic.
The players join Wayne Hennessey and Scott Dann as new arrivals at Selhurst Park on the final day of the January transfer window. Jason Puncheon, meanwhile, made his loan deal from Southampton permanent.
Ince had been linked with Swansea and Stoke City, but joined Palace late on Friday night having undergone his medical the day before. The 22-year-old's contract with the Seasiders expires at the end of the season. It is reported that Palace have paid £1m to take Ince on loan until the end of the campaign.
Ledley joins on a three-and-a-half year deal from Scottish champions Celtic.
Earlier on in the day, Palace signed goalkeeper Hennessey from Wolverhampton Wanderers and midfielder Dann from Blackburn Rovers.
