Pulis to deal in Speroni

Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis admits he is ready to hand goalkeeper Julian Speroni a new contract.

The 34-year-old is out-of-contract in the summer and is yet to hold talks with the club he joined back in 2004.

Speroni himself admits that he wants to stay at Selhurst Park but admits anything can happen in football.

"We haven't spoken as of yet so I don't know what's going to happen," he said.

"I love this club. I've been here 10 years now. But in football you never know."

But Pulis underlined his commitment to keep the Argentine and said: "Speroni, along with half a dozen of the other players, has been absolutely superb since I have come into the club.

"Of course (I would like to keep him) and he has been at the club how long? For 15 years? Or 120 years or whatever it is."
