Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew wants to add 'big signings' to his squad over the coming months.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says that he will be knocking Steve Parish's door down this summer for big-name buys. 

Speaking at his press conference today, covered by the club's official Twitter account, Pardew expressed his desire to see the Eagles bring in quality over the coming months, and says he will do his utmost to convince Parish to invest in the squad.

Pardew feels that Palace are on the verge of something special and wants to inject a small amount of further quality to help the club improve.

If Pardew is backed with funds, then Palace will be a very positive place heading into next season.

The London club have excelled since Pardew took charge and are enjoying a strong end to the campaign, which has raised expectations for the future.

Palace appear to have the quality to rival the top sides in the Premier League and are now fighting for a place in the top-half.

There is a lot of momentum building at Selhurst Park and if they add more quality to their ranks, then anticipation for next term is sure to build even further.

Palace are likely to be on the lookout for players in a number of positions, and today's rumours have suggested that Queens Park Rangers forward Charlie Austin is among those on their wishlist.
