Crystal Palace are edging closer to agreeing a new deal with Marouane Chamakh.

The South London Press says Chamakh is close to agreeing a new two-year contract at Crystal Palace.

The Moroccan international was due to be a free agent next month but the Eagles want him to stay in SE25.

And Palace are increasingly confident that Chamakh will commit his future to Tony Pulis' side, although Selhurst Park insiders insist the deal is not completed yet.
