Crystal Palace will offer starlet Wayne Routledge a new deal.Crystal Palace are set to offer starlet Wayne Routledge a big new contract, to stave off interest from other top-flight clubs.
The tricky winger has been impressive this season, and is central to manager Iain Dowie's plans.
Dowie admitted that he wants to convince Routledge that he can fulfil his ambitions at Selhurst Park.
"We will get to a position where we know either way, sooner rather than later," said Dowie.
"We had some discussions with Wayne that will continue. He is a player that I want to keep.
"We will do whatever we can to reward the lad and make him realise all his dreams here."
