Crystal Palace defender Partick van Aanholt revealed he was flattered by the rumours linking him with Juventus.

The 27-year-old admitted he is “in a good way” ahead of the Premier League season, after impressing in his first full season at Selhurst Park.

The former Chelsea player joined Palace from Sunderland for £9m in January 2017, he has made 43 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles and insists he is “happy” with the squad ahead of the new campaign.

He told Sky Sports News: “It is always good to be linked with big clubs like Juventus. It is a sign that I am in a good way.

“I am feeling good and I want to keep doing that, but I am a Palace player and I am looking forward to the season.

“I am happy. We have got a great squad, my family lives in London, my kids go to school here.

“It is just a rumour and unless there is really people coming in then I will never worry about it.”

The Eagles begin their Premier League campaign away at newly-promoted Fulham on Saturday and will arrive in high spirits after an unbeaten pre-season.
