Steve Parish insists Crystal Palace are trying to clear the air with their want-away defender Florian Marange, who was furious having been left out of the Eagles 25-man Premier League squad, despite only arriving at the club in the summer.

Despite Marange's understandable disappointment, Parish is keen to resolve issues. "No one intended for it to happen that way. We are trying to sort it out as best we can.

"We will resolve it. We are mindful of where we've not covered ourselves in glory and other people just maybe need to be mindful of where they've not covered themselves in glory. If everyone is sensible, we'll reach a good conclusion, I'm sure," he told the Evening Standard.

Marange was also unhappy with the treatment he received off the pitch, believing he was given no support by club officials. 

Predictably, Parish has also referred to these comments as he tried to protect his clubs image, he said: "We're not happy that we have someone here who doesn't feel they were treated well. We don't like that. That is not the kind of club that we are."

Marange was one of 16 new arrivals at Selhurst Park, and another one of those, Stephen Dobbie has also found himself left out of the squad. 

Dobbie first joined Palace in a loan move from rivals Brighton in the latter half of last season and helped them secure a return to the top flight for the first time since 2005. Two other members of the Play-Off winning squad, Aaron Wilbraham and Owen Garvan also fell foul to the rule and will likely now look for temporary moves in the emergency loan window.

Manager Ian Holloway could have been forced to leave out more of his summer signings had a deal been finalised for Andy Johnson. 

Despite their best efforts, Palace failed to complete the deal and Sky Sports are reporting that Parish may try to bring Johnson back to Selhurst Park in January, quoting him as saying: "He won't be far from our thoughts in January. It's something we'll always consider. We'll keep in touch with him."
