Max Meyer has moved to distance himself from speculation surrounding his future at Crystal Palace, although he does concede he ‘won’t rule anything out’.
The German midfielder has failed to cement his place in the Palace first team this season, starting just six Premier League games and making a further seven appearances from the bench.
Meyer joined Palace in 2018 on a free transfer after his contract at German side Schalke expired, going on to make 28 Premier League appearances in his debut season at the club.
However, a lack of first team football this campaign has led to speculation that the 24-year-old could be on his way out of the club. And despite insisting that he will remain at Selhurst Park until the end of the season, Meyer couldn’t provide assurances beyond that point.
“I still have a contract for a year-and-a-half and I will definitely play at Crystal Palace until the summer,” Meyer told Sport1 as reported by InsideFutbol.
“I feel really comfortable but I can’t and won’t rule out anything. Of course, the Bundesliga can be an issue again.”
Despite suggesting that a return to Germany could not be ruled out, Meyer went on to add that he is enjoying his time in England and that he his future is not at the forefront of his mind.
“The focus is currently on England, the Premier League is too much fun,” he added.
“I am not thinking of saying goodbye now.”
The Palace midfielder’s attentions will now turn to Saturday’s clash against Newcastle, as Roy Hodgson’s men look to avoid being pulled back into a relegation dogfight.
Palace sit 14th in the Premier League, six points above West Ham who currently occupy the final relegation place.
Saturday’s game against Steve Bruce’s men kicks off a crucial run of fixtures for the south London based side, with clashes against Brighton, Watford and Bournemouth on the horizon.
