Palace boss Neil Warnock had hoped to tempt the former Arsenal man to Selhurst Park.
â€śThere was a little bit of a misunderstanding, but I think Iâ€™m going to stay,â€ť the wing-back told the Fulham Chronicle. â€śI didnâ€™t sign a new (two-year) contract to move on. Iâ€™ve been here almost four years, and I said in the past I could have moved to Benfica, but I stayed.
â€śI grafted in the Championship, and now weâ€™re back in the Premier League.
â€śSome things were said between me and Harry (Redknapp), and I donâ€™t want to say what, but Iâ€™m going to stay and give it my best shot.â€ť
