Crystal Palace fan favourite hints at exit

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni has hinted that although he has just signed a new one year contract extension, he may still leave the club in an interview with South London Today.

On Tuesday night, Speroni plays in a testimonial against his former club Dundee United, which could be his last game for Crystal Palace.

He is quoted as saying: “I’m here now and have one more year on my contract. But it doesn’t mean anything.

“I could be gone in the summer. Football is a very unique business. I just want to make Tuesday night special.

“If that is my last time I’m going to be at Selhurst Park then I want it to be something to remember.”

After being ever-present in the Crystal Palace goal the news of an exit would come as a surprise. But the 36 year old is keen to carry on his career whether it be at Selhurst Park or elsewhere.

Speroni goes on to add: “I feel blessed in terms of my fitness but I never take anything for granted. I keep working my best. When the time comes to make a decision then I will make the best one for everybody.”

The Argentine stopper has made 357 league appearances for the Eagles since his move from Dundee United in 2004.

Crystal Palace are expected to see several players come in and many leave this summer as Alan Pardew reshapes the squad, and Julian Speroni could be one of the casualties.

West Bromwich Albion could make a move as former Palace boss Tony Pulis is a keen admirer and will be in the market for a new ‘keeper with Ben Foster a long-term injury worry.

Who could Crystal Palace look to replace Julian Speroni with if he were to leave?
