Crystal Palace midfielder Hiram Boateng has signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2017.
The 19-year-old has penned an extension to his current deal, continuing his long association with the club having been a part of the Palace academy since the age of eight.
On the deal, he said: "We've been talking about things since December and it got sorted out last week.
"I spoke to [Alan Pardew] quite a bit, I've had a few sessions with the first-team and he came to watch some of our development games at Tooting and Mitcham. He said he liked what he saw and he wants me to kick on and get some more aspects to my game.
"It's great being in and around the first-team and it's good watching that level of players and seeing how they cope in a Premier League game. It's what I want to be doing soon."

The central midfielder has progressed through the youth ranks to make his first-team debut in an FA Cup third round tie at Stoke City in January 2013, and he also featured in the competition the following season in the third round victory at West Bromwich Albion.
Yet to make his league bow for the Eagles, Boateng did have a brief loan spell at Crawley Town at the back of end last season and was recently named on the bench for Palace's Premier League clash with Southampton earlier this month.
He has been a regular for the development side over recent seasons, and has made 20 appearances for the under-21s this campaign, scoring once.
