Eagles forward targeting lengthy stay
Andros Townsend has reiterated his commitment to Crystal Palace and hopes to continue improving next season.
The 27-year-old has established himself as a key figure at Selhurst Park since joining from Newcastle in a £13million deal in the summer of 2016.
Townsend enjoyed his best-ever scoring campaign in 2018-19, hitting nine goals, as Palace finished 12th and he is hoping for an even greater haul next term.
He believes his best years are still ahead and has reassured Palace fans that he intends to spend them with the Eagles.
Townsend said: "I would like to think I am coming into my best years. I am extremely happy here. I think this is my fourth season and every season I have improved up until now, and hopefully I can keep improving, and I don't see why this isn't a place I can stay for another few years.
"I am excited for the season ahead and hopefully I can improve on last season.
"Season by season I want to improve, I want to improve my goal tally and assists, and I want to improve my minutes on the pitch, and try and be ever-present as I was last season.
"Last season I got nine goals, this season I want to get ten. I want to keep improving and that is what motivates me to keep going and come back in pre-season and go again."
