Crystal Palace have signed defender Paul McShane from Hull City on a one-month loan deal.

The 26-year-old will play for Palace until 18th February and is available for their game against Leeds United at home on Saturday.

"Crystal Palace Football Club have signed defender Paul McShane on loan from Hull City," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The 26-year-old will be with us through until February 18th.

"The versatile defender can play at right-back or in central defence and on the international scene has made 12 caps for the Republic of Ireland.

"He has been signed in time to be available for this weekend's game against Leeds United."

McShane has struggled to find regular playing time at Hull this season despite recovering from a calf injury.
