Crystal Palace have swooped for Fulham's Kagisho Dikgacoi on loan until the end of the season.

Dikgacoi, 26, featured for South Africa in last year's World Cup where he was one of their key players.

The midfield enforcer has only played four minutes for the Cottagers this season but surprisingly had his contract extended last month.

He said: "I am over the moon because finally I will get an opportunity to play. I want to play so that I can make a contribution to whichever team I am at, and also to stay in contention for a place in the national team."

Dikgacoi joined Fulham in August 2009 and has gone on to make eight starts and eight substitute appearances.

Palace boss Dougie Freedman said: "He's an experienced international player who has played in England for a little bit of time now, so he will be adapted to that.

"He's a holding midfielder who can break play up but he can also start attacks. Kagisho's an athletic type and he will sit in the midfield and give us a bit of experience."
