West Brom target Jedinak embracing fight for Crystal Palace spot

Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak is determined to fight for his spot in Alan Pardew's new-look side.

The Australian international has found his place under threat at Selhurst Park since the £10million signing of Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain and has subsequently been linked with former Eagles boss Tony Pulis at West Bromwich Albion

Jedinak, though, insists he has had assurances from Pardew about his place in the squad: "With Cabaye coming in it's a massive deal for the club.

"We all know his pedigree and what he has done in the Premier League, being an international player.

"There's always a fight for positions and that's the way it should be. Come game day is up to you to deliver and you go out there with your team mates well-wishes.

"I'm here now, and I think all of that is just talk. I don't take too much notice.

"It's been made clear, there is no doubt about that and I am looking forward to the challenge and taking this club to the next level."
