Kevin Phillips has warned his future remains uncertain after helping Crystal Palace return to the Premier League.

Phillips, 39, joined Palace on loan from Blackpool in January, and scored the decisive penalty which saw the Eagles move back into the top tier of English football.

However, despite Palace remaining hopeful of making the former England striker's deal a permenent one, Phillips says he is considering his options to move on.

"My agent has been speaking to Palace and the chairman (Steve Parish) - there have been a few figures bandied around but we're a bit apart on them," Phillips told the Croydon Advertiser.

"I do have offers elsewhere and if I'm being honest, there is one real offer which I'm very, very tempted by.

"There are a couple of other offers that may materialise over the next week or so too. But there is certainly an offer there for me that is very tempting. It's at a good level that certainly interests me.

"There are certainly different offers out there on the pitch and even off it for me, and at my age I'm delighted at these people expressing their interest. The week after next will be an important week for me."
