Moritz keeps Eagles in mind

Attacking midfielder Andre Moritz insists Crystal Palace will come first when the time comes to discuss his future.

Moritz, who is quickly becoming a cult hero amongst the Palace faithful, joined the club back in August after a move to Rangers collapsed.

But the Brazilian is quickly attracting interest from elsewhere due to the team's impressive run which has seen him score three goals in his last three outings.

"Coming to England was like a gamble to me because I was earning lots of money in Turkey - I cut my wage by like 85 per cent. But I'm really happy I made that choice. I've got used to English football in a fast way," he told the South London Press.

"I have a one-season contract with Crystal Palace. If something else comes I will talk to Palace.

"They talked to me and gave me the opportunity. I will always respect Palace in front of any other club."
