Gabbidon Extends Eagles Stay

4 June 2013

Crystal Palace Football Club are delighted to confirm that centre-back Danny Gabbidon has had his contract at Selhurst Park extended by a further season.

The Welsh defender arrived at the club on a free transfer in September 2012 and went on to make 14 appearances for the Eagles, including a starting spot for the final seven games of the season as his side clinched a spot in the play-offs and then went on to lift the trophy at Wembley.

The former Cardiff City, West Ham United and QPR defender has amassed well over 350 club appearances during his career, as well as winning 46 caps for the Welsh national side, and adds plenty of Premier League experience to Ian Holloway's squad ahead of their return to the top-flight next season.

Gabbidon said: "I'm delighted to carry on playing for Palace for another season, I've really enjoyed my time so far as there's a great group of lads here and I can't wait to have another crack at Premier League football playing alongside them.

"The club has amazing supporters and they've been great to me since I joined, and I can't wait to playing against the top teams in the country at Selhurst next season."

The club can also confirm that academy players William Johnson-Cole, Kieran Woodley, Aaron Akuruka, Bayan Fenwick, Jack Holland and Kadell Daniel have all left the club after they weren't offered professional deals.
