Crystal Palace are considering opening talks with midfielder Andros Townsend over a new Selhurst Park contract.

Townsend joined Palace from Newcastle in 2016 and has been an integral part of the Eagles side ever since.

The 29-year-old has featured over 150 times for the club and is now in to his fifth season as a Crystal Palace player.

The former Spurs man was a favourite under current boss Roy Hodgson whilst the 73-year-old was manager of England, and their close relationship has continued to flourish in South London.

So much so, that reports claim Palace are keen to open contract talks with Townsend, whose current Palace deal expires at the end of the season.

Football Insider claim that the Eagles are keen to tie down the midfielder to a new deal instead of risking losing him for a nominal fee in the January transfer window.

Any new deal is suggested to be a long-term one, which may even keep Townsend at Selhurst Park well into his thirties.
