Former Royal Oster in pay dispute with Palace

Former Royal Oster in pay dispute with Palace

Oster spent last season at Crystal Palace, after his release from Reading, but despite a decent season he was released in May. However he has now complained to the Football Association over unpaid wages and bonuses from the Selhurst Park club.

Oster spoke on Monday to Sky Sports News, ''I asked my agent Mel Stein to speak to the FA about it, I'm owed four weeks' pay and Palace still owe my agent some money. There's also an issue about money they wrongly took from me about six months ago. I just want it resolved as soon as possible.'

'I'm obviously concerned as they say the bonuses will be paid at the end of the month along with my last pay day. I fear the same scenario will arise again. If Palace knew they were going to pay us by cheque then why didn't they send the cheques out when we should have been paid last month? I'm not being greedy, I just want what is mine.'

Oster is currently on the look out for a new club.
