CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Parish says Jonny Williams' situation at the club is a "difficult one" but expects him to play against Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup this evening. The gifted midfielder is struggling to get into the first team again and has been linked with another move to the Championship on loan. Williams, 20, went to Ipswich Town at the end of last season and impressed. And a host of Championship clubs have made enquiries in the last three weeks. The youngster's immediate future may depend on his performance against the Magpies, but the club have no intention of selling him. "People are going to the agent Jamie Moralee, he's an ex-Palace player and I've got a lot of time for him," Parish told the Advertiser. "We talk a lot about Jonny and we've got to develop Jonny as a player. He wants him to play and the trouble is he is so close to it at Palace, so it's a difficult one. "He went to Ipswich last season and did well, but Neil Warnock wants to take a look at him first."
