Alan: Convince Me

Alan Pardew is hoping Jon Harley can convince him that he is worthy of an extended contract at Upton Park.

Jon's loan spell has to end soon and with the transfer deadline looming Alan is still mulling over his options.

"Jon has got a couple of games left to impress us," he says.

"I think by his own admission he could play better.

"I need to see better and I need to put him under that pressure."

Jon has been told by Fulham they would free him - he is out of contract there this summer anyway - but of course he is earning Premiership wages at present.
