Phillips hopeful of new Palace deal

Kevin Phillips is optimistic that he will be offered a new deal with the Crystal Palace ahead of the new season, Sky Sports understands.

The former England international, who turns 40 next month, scored the only goal of the Championship play-off final last month, clinically dispatching an extra-time penalty to send the Eagles back to the Premier League for the first time in nine seasons.

He is currently a free agent after spending the latter part of last season at Selhurst Park on loan from Blackpool, and has admitted that one final season in the top flight of English football would be a perfect swansong to his career.

If given a one year deal, it would give Phillips the opportunity to become the Premier League’s oldest ever scorer, a record held by former international teammate Teddy Sherringham, and one he is keen to add to his list of individual honours.

In 2000, whilst playing for Sunderland, Phillips became the only Englishman to have won the European Golden Boot.
