The Eagles are also reported to be in discussions with Nathaniel Clyne and Remi Matthews to renew their stay at Selhurst as they look to build a team that can stand the rigour of Premier League top 10 football ahead of next season. 

The news of the new contract to the trio is expected to add extra spice and lift the moods within the squad ahead of the game against Wolves this weekend. 

The Eagles are looking to push up the league table having spent large parts of the campaign stuck in 14th. They have however picked 13 points from their last 15 available and will go the same points as Wolves who are challenging for Europe at some point this season if they can get all three points this weekend.

The Eagles have taken to the Austrian manager and have shown incredible improvement already while picking up points. The win at Anfield triggered a new form that has brought wins against Newcastle and Manchester United amongst others.

The trio of Michael OliseEberechi Eze and Jean-Philippe Mateta are all looking good and flying at the moment. The biggest challenge will be how they are able to hold on to their prized assets with top six clubs constantly looking at them.
