Crystal Palace eyeing another USA tour

Crystal Palace are pondering a second successive summer tour of the USA.

The south London club travelled across the Atlantic for a nine-day tour where they met Columbus Crew, Philadelphia Union and the Richmond Kickers last off-season and according to chairman Steve Parish, a similar tour could be 'a possibility' for the upcoming summer.

However, the Eagles chief insisted that the pre-season preparations would have to benefit the club while suggesting there could also be a friendly at Selhurst Park.

"We would go where we could get the right fixtures," said Parish.

"We are trying to get a friendly organised for when the pitch will be ready again. We have got room for one friendly so we are trying to sort that out."
