Hull defender Anthony Gardner has agreed to stay at Crystal Palace until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old centre-half's initial loan spell came to an end after Monday's win over Preston.

Gardner has made nine appearances for the Eagles since arriving in south London in August.

He will be in the squad for Saturday's FA Cup trip to Coventry.
