Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish is hopeful he can persuade Kevin Phillips to sign a new deal with the club.
The 39-year-old scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the Championship play-off final against Watford to secure the Eagles' return to the Premier League after an eight-year absence.
The former Sunderland striker's contract at Selhurst Park expired at the end of the campaign and there was speculation he would call time on his career.
However, Palace are eager to utilise Phillips' experience in the top flight next season and have offered him a new 12-month contract.
Parish is hopeful the veteran forward will put pen-to-paper and believes he can make an impact next campaign, despite his advancing years.
"He's someone we feel could still do a job in the Premier League, if we can come to some agreement with him and he is happy to be down in the south of England for another year," said Parish.
"Kevin is super professional and we know he wouldn't make a decision to stay if he wasn't going to give his all."
