Crystal Palace sign Swansea City defender Ashley Richards on loan until the end of the season.

Full-back Ashley Richards has left Swansea City to join Crystal Palace on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old, who has made only four appearances for the Premier League club this season, admits that he could not turn down the opportunity to join a top Championship side.

Richards told the club's official website: "Swansea were happy to let me go out on loan and it was a great opportunity for me.

"It's a brilliant club to be coming into, sitting in the top six of the Championship.

"As a player you want to be fighting for a place in the Premier League and hopefully I can play my part in the club getting there."

Richards made his full international debut for Wales last summer.
