Davis disappointed with manner of Palace release

Crystal Palace defender Claude Davis has accused the Championship club of performing a U-turn over a new contract. Davis claims a contract had initially been drawn up for him, but insists he bears no grudge against boss Dougie Freedman.

"I didn't expect it because there was something on the table a week ago," Davis told the South London Press. "But on Monday there was a different arrangement.

"A deal had been in place four days before, but the club changed their mind. I was disappointed and surprised, but I'm all right - I just have to move on.

"I've got nothing bad to say about Palace or the management, nothing at all. We sat down and talked calmly - there was no argument. I respect the gaffer because he's a straight-talker. I shook his hand and said `I'll see you if I see you'."
