Crystal Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne is thrilled his performances have sparked interest in his signature.

The England Under-21 international has been in splendid form this season, helping knock Manchester United out of the Carling Cup and Palace to eighth in the Npower Championship.

Such performances have sparked reported interest in the full-back, with United one of those linked with a move for the out-of-contract Clyne.

"I am delighted. It shows I am getting credited for my good performances," he said.

"I have just got to focus on my game and keep working hard. And whatever happens, happens."

Clyne produced another man-of-the-match performances in victory over Birmingham City on Monday, as interest swells.

With Clyne out of contract next summer, Palace could be keen to cash in on the defender in the January transfer window if they're handed a substantial offer.

Otherwise, the club will be risking loosing Clyne for nothing next year, with the proposition of moving to United perhaps too good to turn down.

With Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker the front runners to be included in Fabio Capello's England squad for Euro 2012, Clyne could be in line to play for Team GB in the Olympic Games.

Along with United's interest, Newcastle United have also been tracking the English flyer.
