New Deal for Dowie

Some good news

Crystal Palace boss Iain Dowie and his backroom staff have agreed new four-year deals with the Eagles.

Dowie led the Selhurst Park outfit to promotion via the play-offs last season after taking over in December 2003.

"We have one of the best, if not the best, young manager in the country," said Palace chairman Simon Jordan.

In addition to Dowie, assistant manager Kit Symons, fitness coach John Harbin and Mike Kelly have signed new deals with the Premiership newcomers.

Bob Dowie has been brought to the club as director of football and will look to improve the club's scouting network.

Jordan, in a letter posted on the club's website, went on to outline the amount of money the club has spent on the players they have bought this summer.

And he hinted that more players are likely to arrive before the transfer window closes on 31 August.

"During the summer we have tried as much as possible to keep our transfer dealings low key," he continued.

"But be under no illusion that we have been very busy and will continue to be prior to the transfer window closing."

Palace beat Sunderland in the semi-final and West Ham in the final to secure a top-flight after winning 14 of 22 games after Dowie's arrival.
