In the last few weeks rumours surrounding his contract at Palace have ramped up with lots of outlets reporting his current deals ends at the end of the season.

Some have also linked him with a move to Rangers, the club he supported as a boy. But Macca opened up on the FYP Podcast to explain that actually he still has two years left to run on his current deal.

"I've already got a contract, I signed a four-year contract two-years ago."

Asked if that means two more years at Palace he emphatically replied: "Yep!"

So there you go. Panic over.
