Pulis keen to keep Speroni at Crystal Palace

The Argentine goalkeeper has been at Selhurst Park for 10 years and the new manager has been pleased with his No.1's performances since he replaced Ian Holloway in the dugout
Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis has confirmed that he would like to extend Julian Speroni's stay at the club.

The goalkeeper has spent the last 10 years at Selhurst Park but his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

5/4 Crystal Palace are 5/4 with William Hill to avoid relegation from the Premier League
The Argentine has played every Premier League game for Palace so far in 2013-14 and Pulis is keen for the 34-year-old stalwart to remain with the London club.

"Speroni, along with half a dozen of the other players, has been absolutely superb since I have come into the club [in November]," the Welshman told reporters.

"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."

Speroni has made no secret of his affection for Palace but is unsure of whether he will stay.

"We haven't spoken [about a new contract] as of yet so I don't know what's going to happen," the keeper remarked.

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