Mile Jedinak says he is extremely confident that Crystal Palace will continue to move forward despite a mediocre beginning to the Premier League season.

The Australian midfielder has signed a fresh three-and-a-half-year deal with the Eagles, after initially joining from Turkish club Genclerbirligi in 2011, and is eyeing more improvement after gaining promotion to the top flight last season.

"The first season was great and the second obviously ended in us getting promoted and now we're in the Premier League where we want to be, so I'm really happy here and pleased that I've done this," the Palace skipper told the club's official website.

"I've built some strong relationships with players here and I've tried to make myself available to every player that comes through the gates and make them feel welcome and part of what we do.

"Everyone knows what we're about here and I have no doubts that we'll continue to push forward."
