The Eagles boss was at Portman Road on Tuesday night to witness Williams score fine a 30-yard equaliser and produce a superb all-round performance as the Blues beat Derby 2-1 to keep alive their top-six ambitions.

Attacking midfielder Williams has add some star quality to the Town side, filling the void left by injured talisman David McGoldrick, but his short-term loan is set to expire at the end of March.

Although the ‘emergency’ loan window closes at 5pm today, clubs can agree to extend existing loans beyond that date. Williams will definitely be in the Town squad for Saturday’s visit of Nottingham Forest, with Pulis and Mick McCarthy to have a discussion prior to the deal’s expiration next Monday.

Palace are just one place and three points above the Premier League drop zone with big games against Cardiff, Aston Villa, West Ham and Fulham to come.

“I went to watch the game at Ipswich and Jonny Williams scored a great goal and played well,” said Pulis. “But I will be speaking to Ipswich about Williams before speaking to the media.”

McCarthy has confirmed that he’d like to keep Williams until the end of the season, while Williams has said he’d like to stay at Portman Road if he’s not going to play for Palace in their battle against relegation.
