Alan Pardew: This Crystal Palace star could be the bargain of the summer

Pardew revealed his delight at the pre-season form of his £13m buy from relegated Newcastle, with Townsend looking like a man eager to prove Roy Hodgson was wrong to cut him from his England squad for Euro 2106.

“Andros has been the biggest influence in pre-season without a doubt,” said Pardew.

“He has shown us that he is definitely going to contribute assists and goals for us at the level it dictates to be an England player.

“I definitely think he will be thinking about getting in the next England squad – and I notice that Big Sam has given him a mention already, which bodes well.”
