Nathaniel Clyne has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract extension with Crystal Palace.
The 30-year-old has signed a new deal with the club, having returned to south London last October following his release from Liverpool.
Clyne made 14 appearances for Palace last season after returning to the club, with the Eagles academy graduate impressing for Roy Hodgson’s side.
He has featured for Palace in pre-season under Patrick Vieira and now he has pledged his future to the Eagles for another season, with the former Southampton and Liverpool defender expressing his delight at his new deal.
“Having been with Crystal Palace at such a young age, I know how much pulling on the shirt means,” he said to the club’s website.
“I’m delighted to have been able to return and do that again, and to be part of an important period for the club under the new gaffer by extending my time here is massive for me personally. Now I want to play in front of a full Selhurst again.”
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has heaped praise on Clyne, adding that he proved to be a fantastic part of the squad last season and that his new contract will ensure that the Eagles continue to balance youth and experience within Vieira’s side.
News of Clyne’s new deal follows confirmation that Osian Roberts has been appointed as Palace’s assistant manager, joining Vieira’s staff ahead of the new season.
