Julian Speroni: I could leave Crystal Palace this summer

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Julian Speroni has been at Crystal Palace for over a decade now and recently saw his contract extended.

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni has admitted to South London Today that he could leave Selhurst Park this summer.

Palace are not expected to sell Speroni, who has had an impressive 2014/15 season in between the sticks and only recently took up the option to extend his contract by a further 12 months, but the Argentine is taking nothing for granted.

The experienced stopper believes that his place in the squad could be put at risk and admits that it would be foolish for him to think that anybody under Alan Pardew’s tutelage is indispensable.

“I’m here now and have one more year on my contract," he said. "But it doesn’t mean anything.

“I could be gone in the summer. Football is a very unique business."

Speroni has one year left on his Palace contract after agreeing to an extension, but he has reached the age of 36 now and the club may have to start planning for the future.

If Speroni does leave the Eagles, which remains highly unlikely, he will exit a hero, after showing great loyalty to the London outfit.

Speroni has been at Palace for over 10 years now and will be hoping that his time does not come to an end with the future looking so bright.

Palace have improved considerably under Pardew already and appear to have the chance of breaking into the top-half of the Premier League standings next term.
