Crystal Palace midfielder Ben Watson says he will stay at Selhurst Park for as long as the club wants him.

Watson, 22, scored the second in Saturday's 2-1 win against Colchester, but has been linked with a move away.

Watson told BBC London 94.9: "My future is here. But it's not down to myself. If something happens it's not that I want to leave.

"I'm not going to go in banging the gaffer's door down saying that I want to leave, I'll never do that."

The former England Under-21 international added: "Hopefully at the end of the season we'll be in the Premier League with Palace."

Watson, who has made more than 150 appearances for the Eagles, has scored three times this season to help the club to ninth in the Championship, three points off the play-off positions.
