Peter Ramage not expecting new deal at Crystal Palace

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Crystal Palace defender Peter Ramage is not expecting to be offered a new deal at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace defender Peter Ramage has told the Sheffield Star that he won't receive another contract at Selhurst Park.

Ramage's current deal at Palace expires at the end of the season and the defender is seemingly has no part to play in Alan Pardew's long-term plans.

He has spent the latter part of this season out on loan at Barnsley and it seems that his form whilst at the Yorkshire club has not persuaded the Eagles to keep him on.

“My contract is up at Crystal Palace and I know I’m not going to get anything there," he said.

“I spoke to them the other week about what they’re going to require from me. I’m not going to be going back down there and playing."

Ramage has been at Palace since 2011 and, although he was a solid performer at Championship level, he has been left behind by the club.

Pardew's side have made rapid improvements since he took charge and they are now looking to break into the top-half of the Premier League table.

As a result, Ramage has been deemed surplus to requirements and it seems that he will be searching for a new club in the summer months.

Who this side will be remains to be seen, but it seems unlikely that he will stay with Barnsley as his wage demands are too high for the League One outfit to meet at present.
