Defender can't wait to get started at Palace
AARON Martin says he can't wait to get going at Crystal Palace after joining on a season-long loan from Premier League new boys Southampton.
The central defender, 22, joined the Eagles this week having made 17 appearances for Nigel Adkins' men in their promotion winning campaign last season.
And Martin, who joined Southampton in November 2009 from non-league side Eastleigh, said he was looking forward to gaining further experience at Selhurst Park.
"It is what I need," he said.

"Dougie [Freedman] is a great manager, this is a great club and I can't wait to get going."
Martin, who has a contract at Southampton until 2014, added that it was good to get his immediate future sorted out early on in the summer and that he was already looking ahead to the new season.
"It takes a weight off my mind and I know exactly what I am doing," he said.
"I am feeling ready and hopefully we can hit the ground running."
