Crystal Palace defender Jonathan Parr is all set for the Premier League.

The Norwegian left-back, who can also operate in left midfield and at right-back, has been one of the most consistent performers in Championship last season. However, his future remains uncertain as a host of clubs are chasing his signature.

Crystal Palace earned their Premier League status for next season via the play-offs. Parr missed the crucial period of the season due to a torn ligament. 

That hasn’t reduced the number of interested parties in the left-back, accroding to SkySports.

Crystal Palace's Player of the Year in 2012, possess an all-round game which will help his transition to the Premier League. 

The 24-year-old Norway international, Parr has taken over from John Arne Riise as the national team left-back. With age on his side, he is expected to develop into an even better player in the upcoming seasons.

His two years with the Championship side was a hugely productive one for his career. Parr learned the tricks of English football already, and is developing into a good all-round player. 

His work ethics, darting runs and high fitness levels makes him one of the fans' favourites at Selhurst Park.

Parr’s season ended prematurely with an ankle ligament damage which forced him to miss the Championship play-off final. 

His ligaments were completely torn in the match against Ipswich Town and he hasn’t taken the field since. He is expected to return before the start of season, even though he might not make it at the start of pre-season training.

Only a year is remaining on his contract and he was scouted by a host of Premier League clubs earlier. Many teams including Sunderland are looking for a left-back and Parr suits the bill perfectly

Injury lay-off might be a stumbling block for an imminent move, but it remains to be seen which colour he will be wearing next season.

He is going to be a Premier League player next season but will it be at Crystal Palace?
