Kevin Phillips has revealed that he wants to extend his stay with Crystal Palace.

The 39-year-old striker, who spent the second half of last season on loan from Blackpool, recently claimed that he has been tempted to sign another contract elsewhere.

"There's been a lot of rumours around and I've been offered a couple of really testing offers but, at this stage in my career, if there's any chance of staying in the Premier League then that's the place to be," Phillips told talkSPORT.

"Ian Holloway isn't afraid to use me, he wants me at the football club, and I want to stay. Hopefully we'll get it sorted by the end of the week."

Phillips scored the winning goal against Watford in the Championship playoff final to secure Palace their place in the top flight.
