Mile Jedinak: Moves to Aston Villa

Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak stated he has no desire to leave the South London club despite having the captaincy stripped from him by Alan Pardew.

The Australian international has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, with Hull City reportedly interested in the player.

Scott Dann is the man who will take the armband for Palace, but Jedinak insisted he will not let the decision affect his performances for the Eagles.

“My commitment is to Palace,” Jedinak told Fox Sports.

“I’m a Palace player. I’ve not been told otherwise by anybody and until then you remain committed.

“At this time of the season there’s a lot of speculation but I just remain true to myself and keep my head down and not remain muddled with anything.”

The 32-year-old admitted he was shocked at Pardew’ decision to remove him of being captain, after leading the side to an FA Cup final.

“I was surprised, obviously. When you do a job with full commitment, it’s never nice,” Jedinak said.

“You give your all to the task and hopefully that’s enough but sometimes things get taken out of your hands and one way or another you have to accept it and get on with it and focus on the task at hand.”

    He must be be upset about loosing the captaincy but being the legend he is he isn’t making a huge thing about it. I fear he may go out to West Brom or A Villa as I don’t think he is one of Pardew’s favourites, he has gone from first name and captain in the team sheet to hardly playing last year and he won’t enjoy being a sub again all season. Age, lack of pace, only having 1 year left in his contract and loosing a selling fee of a few million £££’s are against him staying. Pardew says he wants players that will push us to a higher level so if we were to get someone in like a Sissoko then I would let him move on. We are in a current situation where we shouldn’t let players go unless we have a direct replacement coming in. That’s what better clubs do and a strategy that we need to implement in all our transfers.

    I agree Surrey, even though it is always sad to let our great servants go it is imperative that we have someone to replace them. With Jedi he saved us again last year in the second half of the season when we struggled with wins and goals so let’s keep him until we get a decent replacement.
