The 26-year-old midfielder has slipped down the pecking order at Selhurst Park and ended last season on loan at Millwall.

A return to the Sky Bet Championship could now be on the cards, with second tier interest in his services building steadily.

Garvan is ready to explore all avenues and has refused to rule out the possibility of taking in a second stint at Ipswich Town – the club that helped to launch his career.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: “It looks like my days as a Crystal Palace player are numbered and hopefully I’ll get something sorted in the next couple of weeks.

“My agent is talking to a few Championship clubs and the most important thing for me is to go somewhere where I’ll play regularly, because there is nothing worse as a footballer than being on the bench.”

On the Ipswich link, Garvan added: “I spoke to Mick (McCarthy) earlier in the year but for whatever reason the move didn’t happen.

“I’m not ruling anything in or out at the moment.

“My knees are fine, I played 13 or 14 games for Millwall at the end of the season and have been training well.”

F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
