Vaughan chat helped make up Martin’s mind on loan

Striker Chris Martin has revealed that he consulted City team-mate James Vaughan before taking up a loan move with Crystal Palace.

Martin has joined the Championship side until January 2 after just four senior outings for Norwich since February.

Vaughan had a successful loan stint with the Eagles last season and he had no hesitation in recommending Dougie Freedman's side.

'Vaughany spoke well of the place and he obviously enjoyed his time here,' Martin told Palace's official website.

'He had only good things to say, which helped convince me a little bit to come here.

'I didn't need too much convincing, though, because I know Palace are a big club and are in a good position in the league.'

Martin is set to make his Palace debut at Leicester on Sunday.
