Mandanda wants to join a top Premier League club

France international Steve Mandanda has hinted that he could leave Crystal Palace in the future. The 31-year-old still has the desire to join a top Premier League club.

Mandanda opted to end his eight-year association with Marseille in the summer in order to pursue his dream of playing in the Premier League.

Since then, he has featured regularly for the Eagles in the top flight before he sustained a knee injury on international duty with France earlier this month.

When asked about his future aspirations, the experienced shot-stopper revealed that he could end up at a 'bigger English club', should he impress in his stint at Selhurst Park.

"I had wanted to change and discover the Premier League," he told Telefoot. "Could I end up at a bigger English club? It will depend on my performances. In football, anything is possible."

Mandanda has yet to keep a clean sheet for Alan Pardew's side, who have lost their six league games, conceding 18 goals in the process.
