Jedinak keen to lift Crystal Palace profile across US

Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak is happy to lift the club's profile in the US.

Palace drew 2-2 with the MLS's Columbus Crew last night.

Jedinak told the Croydon Advertiser: "I know a little bit about the MLS. I am not schooled into the MLS but I have a mate (Tim Cahill) who plays in New York, and I know Columbus Crew have been around for a while.

"Now we are here we can put a face to a name with the club, it's great. We have been welcomed with open arms and we are all grateful to be allowed to use the club's facilities.

"We want to get through these training sessions without any injuries. It's all about hard work and preparation at this stage.

"You never know, we might be able to come back in the future and experience it and enjoy ourselves a little bit more, but for what it's worth this has been great so far."
