Robins Ritchie "flattered" by circling Eagles

First published in Crystal Palace FC

Crystal Palace's interest in Swindon Town's Matt Ritchie has drawn compliments from the winger.

The 23-year-old, currently contracted at the County Ground until 2014, was said to be "flattered" to have attracted the attention of Eagles' coach Ian Holloway.

However, Ritchie, who has scored nine goals in 26 League One appearances so far this season for the Robins, was unaware of Palace's pursuit of his signature.

Ritchie was in fine form last year being named League Two Player of the Year at the 2012 Football League Awards.
