Palace have completed the signing of Reading defender John Halls on a month's loan.

The right-back joined Reading from Stoke last January but has struggled to make an impact at the Madejski Stadium, making just seven appearances.

However, he is proven at Championship level having been a regular in the Stoke side and goes straight into the squad for the away game at Wolves.
