Crystal Palace loan signing Kyel Reid admits he's fed up with reserve team football.

The West Ham winger, 20, made his Eagles bow at home to Blackpool last week after agreeing a loan with the South Londoners until the end of the campaign.

He is behind Matthew Etherington and Luis Boa Morte in the Hammers pecking order and is desperate for first team football - and it could be at Palace next season.

"There are a lot of players who are in the comfort zone but I found it frustrating training every day with the first-team, travelling to matches and then not being involved," said the New Cross based player.

"Iíve played in the reserves for the last three or four years and itís not really challenging me any more.

"I will sit down with Alan Curbishley at the end of the season and see what his plans are for me. Then I will have a chat with my agent and see what offers I have.

"My ultimate aim would be to break into the West Ham first team - but if that doesn't work out then I'll have to look elsewhere.

"If it doesn't work out for me at West Ham then Palace would be a good move for me - I'm a south London boy so it would be an easy transition."
