He spoke about his prospects of becoming an important member of Pardew's team to Palace TV, as reported byLondon News Online.

I had a good pre-season and played a lot of games.In my head I was hopeful of having a good season and then a groin injury came at the wrong time.

I just kept working hard to get back from that. When I came here the manager who signed me left and then I went out on loan. Last season under Alan Pardew I didn't get a look-in.

I kept training hard and looked after myself. I've got in the squad now and I'm hoping to make more appearances and help the team.�
