Routledge rejects Palace deal

Crystal Palace winger Wayne Routledge has rejected the club's new contract offer.
The 20-year-old will be out of contract at the end of the season, and The Eagles are desperate to get him to sign a new deal.
Tottenham and Liverpool are both understood to be monitoring Routledge and will be encouraged to hear he has snubbed Palace's offer.
Eagles boss Iain Dowie confirmed that the England Under-21 star had rebuffed the lucrative new deal - which it is thought would have trebled his wages - but insisted he would continue to try and persuade the player to commit his future to the club.
"Wayne has intimated to me that there is not going to be a positive response from him regarding the new deal," Dowie told the South London Press.
"But while he is still here and it goes unsigned I will spend every day and week trying to get him to change his mind."
