Kev lines up a Pre­mier end­ing

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

VET­ERAN striker Kevin Phillips hopes to fi­nalise a deal to end his ca­reer at Crys­tal Palace in the Pre­mier League this week.

The for­mer Eng­land in­ter­na­tional, who turns 40 this month, had been tempted by more game time in the Cham­pi­onship.

But af­ter scor­ing the play-off goal to fire Palace into the top-flight last sea­son, Phillips is set to stay at Sel­hurst Park and sign a one-year ex­ten­sion.

He said: “I’ve just come back from Vegas and I’m hope­fully go­ing to se­cure my fu­ture at Palace some time this week.

“There have been ru­mours of tempt­ing of­fers, but I turn 40 soon and I want to play in the Pre­mier League.”
