Crystal Palace matchwinner Kevin Phillips wants to stay with the Premier League new-boys.

His matchwinning spot-kick was won by Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha, who burst into tears at the end after a magical display against Watford.

Phillips, who is out of contract following his loan spell from Blackpool, told The Sun: “If something is offered to me, I’d be daft to turn it down.

“It would make me the oldest outfield player in the Premier League. I know what my role would be... bit part.

“I have the utmost respect for Ian Holloway. Not many managers would put a 39-year-old on at Wembley.”
