Palace were as high as fifth at Christmas, but their league form has derailed in dramatic fashion since the turn of the year.

Their 2-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday, inspired by a second-half brace from Dwight Gayle, was only their second in 20 matches.

Pardew has maintained that he will not sign a new contract until Palace’s survival had been secured, but with their top-flight status now in tact, the former Newcastle and West Ham manager is ready to commit his future to the club.

Pardew said: “The contract was agreed some time ago but I know this football club and it was very important that our status was secured for me to warrant that contract in my opinion.

“Now it is, I will happily sign it. There has been no question of me not signing it unless we went down, then I would have to ask them if they wanted to do it if I am honest.

“So, there is no problem with my commitment to this football club.”
