Crystal Palace striker Kevin Phillips admits that he is tempted by an offer to move to an unnamed club.

Crystal Palace striker Kevin Phillips has admitted that his head has been turned by another club.

The 40-year-old, who will become a free agent this summer, has revealed his commitment to Palace, who are trying to keep him by launching talks over a new deal.

"My agent has been speaking to Palace and the chairman," Phillips told the Croydon Advertiser. "There have been a few figures banded around but we're a bit apart on them.

"I do have offers elsewhere, and if I'm being honest, there is one real offer which I'm very, very tempted by. There are a couple of other offers that may materialise over the next week or so too.

"But there is certainly an offer there for me that is very tempting, though. It's at a good level that certainly interests me."

Phillips scored the winning goal against Watford in the Championship final playoff to secure Palace a place in the Premier League.
