​Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew is in talks with the club over a new contract and is confident of delivering success to the south London side. 


According to ​BBC, the Englishman has opened discussions over a new deal which would keep him at Selhurst Park for the foreseeable future. 

Pardew took over from Neil Warnock last season having left Newcastle where he was committed to a long-term deal. 


The Eagles were in the bottom three when Pardew took the job and he guided them to a top-10 finish.

"The reason I am talking to them about a new contract here is because I feel we could go forward," Pardew said. "There is no point in me staying if I don't have the ambition."


"When I came here the most important thing was to go from the concept of a manager who was trying to stay in the division - which I think Neil Warnock's mentality was - to a manager who wanted to finish higher than that.

"The biggest difference I made here was changing the mentality of the players to make them think they could go and win.


"I take that as massive for this football club at the time. I think there was a lack of belief. I need to win trophies - that is probably the thing that you can hold against me as a manager, so I want to win trophies."
