CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Parish says he wants to keep Julian Speroni but it may depend on talks held between the custodian and manager Tony Pulis. The Player of the Year's contract runs out next month and has been offered deals elsewhere. The Argentine goalkeeper has been with the Eagles for a decade and the club's supporters are desperate for him to stay. However, Parish doesn't expect any contract talks to commence this week. "There is no date set but I think everyone wants a little break," Parish told the Advertiser. "Tony is going to have a chat with Julian and talk to him about where he sees him and how he sees it going forward. "We would all like to keep Julian at the club, of course we would. It's looking for a long-term plan as well." The co-chairman shares the views of the supporters in wanting to see Speroni at the club in the future, saying he is "a massive part of the fabric". "I think we would like to see Julian really staying at the club and having a future, maybe on the coaching side," Parish added. "He's a massive part of the fabric of Palace. "Right now Julian wants to play and so he should, he's a fantastic keeper and a brilliant servant for the club. "He needs to sit down with Tony in the first instance and then I'm sure I'll get involved from there."
