Crystal Palace are delighted to announce that Wilfried Zaha has pledged his future to the club by signing a contract extension, which will see the Ivorian forward remain in south London until the end of the 2022/23 season.
The Eagles attacker has been at the club since the age of 12 having progressed through the club’s academy, and is now Palace’s joint-highest Premier League scorer of all-time after his goal against Fulham on the opening weekend of the season.
He has made 288 appearances for the Eagles since debuting in 2010, scoring 44 goals in that time, helping his team secure, and later consolidate, top-flight football.
The recipient of the club’s Player of the Year award for each of the past three seasons, Zaha’s sparkling displays last term saw him net a career-high nine Premier League goals, which has seen him rewarded with a new contract with his boyhood club.
Chairman Steve Parish said: “Wilf grew up a stone’s throw from Selhurst Park from the age of four, and has been with the club since he was 12. This agreement is yet another example of his lifelong commitment to the club, and our commitment to him. This is an amazing day for everyone here at Palace, our supporters and of course Wilf – and is richly deserved."
After putting pen to paper, Zaha said: “I’m very pleased. Obviously, I just wanted to get it over and done with, so I can just focus on the season. I’m buzzing that we managed to get it sorted.”
