Qantas Socceroo defender Tony Popovic has agreed a new two-year deal with Crystal Palace, skysports.com has revealed. Popovic (pictured right), a regular at the heart of the Palace and Australian defences, was rewarded with a new deal after helping Palace back into the Premiership. Palace won its place back in the Premiership after a play-off win over West Ham United, with the 31-year-old earning praise for his defensive performances throughout the campaign. "Tony has agreed a new two-year deal," his agent Craig Nettelbeck explained to skysports.com. "He is delighted to have pledged his future to Palace. "We are still waiting to hear on the work-permit and you can never be certain on that, but we are very hopeful." Popovic and Palace are now sweating on his renewed work-permit application, as he has not met the work-permit criteria, although Palace-s play-off commitments meant he was unavailable for quite a number of recent international fixtures played in Australia. He is now waiting on the independent appeals panel, who decide whether a player should be allowed to play in England after failing to meet The Home Office's criteria.
