Spurs linked but Hart would welcome Palace stay

Paul Hart says he would be happy to stay at Crystal Palace after keeping them in the Championship this season.

Palace fans group CPFC 2010 remain in pole position to take over both the club and Selhurst Park, which is separately owned, and talks with the administrators will continue next week.

Hart has been linked with a youth role at Tottenham and said: "We're hoping the new ownership gets completed and now they can build from a sounder base of Championship football, which I think is important.

"It's such a great club that I would fully expect, with the correct business practices put in place that the right visionary people, if handled properly, could make great progress.

"I've said all along, let's get the takeover done then the new owners can make a decision (on the next manager).

"It would be absolutely no hardship whatsoever to work at this football club, it's been a fantastic experience, but they should be allowed to make their own appointments."

Hart, who confirmed he would be going home to see his grand-daughter and walk his dog, added: "I had a great time at Portsmouth and thoroughly enjoyed it and thoroughly enjoyed my time working with these players at Palace, so two out of three ain't bad."
