Wilfried Zaha who grew up in Thornton Heath has committed his future to Crystal Palace by signing a five-year contract extension believed to be worth a huge £110,000 a week.
Chairman Steve Parish posted a picture of himself and Zaha following contract negotiations in Majorca late on Thursday night, with the club’s Twitter account confirming the extension shortly after.
It has been a difficult week for the club after Sam Allardyce’s shock resignation. He is the fifth manager to leave the club in four year’s. Marco Silva, who resigned from relegated Hull is now being linked with Palace.
Shortly after signing the deal, Zaha told Palace’s website: ‘Palace is in my heart and I don’t think the story is over. I spoke with Steve and I think I still have more to give this Club.
‘The supporters have been amazing and I want us to do more than just stay in the League next year. I would like to thank the Chairman for being a big part of my journey and his fellow owners for backing me and rewarding my progression. Let’s do this!’
Zaha has been awarded Palace’s Player of the Season award for the past two seasons, and has responded to question marks over his end product with seven goals and nine assists in the Premier League.
