Report explains Alan Pardew's January transfer plans after Crystal Palace's new investment

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Alan Pardew isn't about to splash the cash at Crystal Palace, according to reports.

According to the Daily Mirror, Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew doesn't plan to make any expensive signings despite the club's new investment.

Palace confirmed on their official website on Friday night that American investors Josh Harris and David Blitzer had agreed to pump money in to the Eagles, and plans for the development of Selhurst Park are already in the pipeline.

Manager Pardew then guided his side to a superb 2-1 victory away at Stoke City, as Connor Wickham and Bojan exchanged penalties before Lee Chung-yong hit the winner for Palace.

The Eagles are level on points with a Champions League place and just three points adrift of third place after a stunning first half of the season under Pardew.

Now, fans are excited that the injection of cash could really push Palace towards a push for European qualification, but Pardew may see things differently.

The Mirror report that Pardew currently has no plans to splash the cash on expensive new signings in January, and will instead look for value for money.

Stuttgart defender Georg Neidermeier is allegedly being lined up as the first January signing for Palace, with an £800,000 deal in the works - showing that Pardew won't spend unnecessarily in the New Year, even if fans may want a new striker brought in.
