Pardew commits future to Crystal Palace ahead of FA Cup final with United

Alan Pardew will commit his future to Crystal Palace by signing a new contract before tomorrow's FA Cup final with Manchester United.

Despite his side finishing 15th, the manager has impressed since his appointment and it is believed has been rewarded with an extension on his current deal, which runs to 2018.

Details of the deal remain undisclosed but Pardew said: "We are probably going to (sign) it before the game."

Pardew has done much to rebuild his reputation since returning to Palace in January last year, and victory on Saturday would represent his finest achievement.

It would also mark 10 years since his West Ham team almost won the FA Cup against Liverpool, while Palace lost to United in the 1990 final while he was a player.
