Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock says the club will miss Mile Jedinak when he leaves for the Asian Cup in January.

Jedinak will captain the Socceroos when Australia hosts the Asian Cup between January 9-21.

The 30-year-old will be one of a host of players missing from Premier League action, with the African Cup of Nations also taking place from January 17 to February 18.

Jedinak has yet again been influential for Palace this season, scoring in both of the South London club’s wins over Leicester City and Everton.

“We will miss him,” Warnock told The Evening Standard.

“He is the leader of the camp. Everything on and off the field revolves around him.

“There is the Africa Cup of Nations at about the same time, too, so it will be difficult for a lot of teams in the Premier League in January and February.”
