Palace have secured the one month loan signing of Sunderland’s young centre half John Egan.

Egan’s loan ends on February 4, but he has been given permission to play a part both in our FA Cup game against Derby but also our Carling Cup Semi against Cardiff.

The young Irish defender has represented his country at U16, U17 and U19 levels and was Captain of Sunderland’s youth team last season before making his reserve break through this campaign.

He was involved for the first time with Sunderland’s senior squad for their trip to Man Utd last November.
