Danny Granville has turned down an initial offer of a new deal at Crystal Palace, while the club are in more positive talks with Wayne Routledge and Gary Borrowdale.

Eagles chairman Simon Jordan revealed that Granville was keen to remain at Selhurst Park, but had turned down their first offer.

"Danny has indicated he would like to stay, but what we offered wasn't what he wanted," Jordan told the South London Press.

"It's a case of suck it and see with Danny."

Granville, Routledge and Barrowdale are all out of contract in the summer and Jordan is looking to keep all three men at the club.

Jordan says that he is having informal talks with Routledge and Barrowdale, aimed at getting the best possible outcome for both parties.

"It's a balancing act between rewarding them for what they have achieved and not letting them get carried away with the money side of things.

"We are speaking to them at the moment, and we'd rather do that than speak to their representatives at this stage.

"We are dealing with Wayne and his mother, both of whom I know very well, and Gary and a friend of his parents. Rest assured it is being handled properly."
