Kevin Phillips reveals that joining Crystal Palace has given him "a new lease of life".

Kevin Phillips has revealed that he will continue to play football "as long as the body is still going".

The 39-year-old, who is contracted to Blackpool, joined Crystal Palace on loan on the final day of the January transfer window.

He made his debut in Palace's 2-1 win over Charlton Athletic at the weekend, with the veteran revealing that it gave him "a new lease of life".

"I love the game. As long as the body is still going and the mind is still going and I'm enjoying it then I'll keep going. Today gave me a new lease of life," he told talkSPORT.

Phillips will reportedly take on a coaching role when he decides to hang up his boots.
