Pardew agrees new deal


Alan Pardew has all but agreed a deal to tie his long-term future to Crystal Palace.

Pardew signed a three-and-a-half-year contract when he took over at Selhurst Park in January 2015, but opened talks over a new deal in December, when the club were in the top six.

Since then they have failed to win in nine Premier League games to drop down to 13th in the table, eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Despite the poor run, negotiations have progressed and the two parties have agreed a deal in principle. However, the 54-year-old wants to wait until the club is safe before putting pen-to-paper on the contract.

They've progressed to a level where we are probably agreed," Pardew told reporters ahead of Saturday's Premier League tie against West Brom.

"I am just waiting to see whether we are still a Premier League club, and that's nothing to do with Steve Parish, it's more to do with me.

"When I get this team over the line I'll sit down and finalise it. It's agreed in principle."
