Crystal Palace: Connor Wickham signs new contract until 2021

Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham has committed his long-term future to the Premier League club after signing a new contract that promises to keep him at Selhurst Park until 2021.

The 26-year-old forward racked up only eight appearances this season with a cruciate knee ligament injury, and then groin and calf problems.

However, with just a year remaining on his contract, the Eagles have tied him down for an additional year with an extension taking him up to 2021.

“It meant a lot that the club backed me after such a serious injury and I hope I’ll be able to repay that faith shown in me,” the forward told

“I’m pleased to have got everything sorted, so I can now fully focus on working my way back into the team during pre-season and the upcoming campaign.

“I hope I’ll be able to show that when fully fit I’m capable of playing a key part.”

Wickham has contributed 10 goals and four assists in 42 appearances since joining the club in August 2015.

Crystal Palace ended their Premier League campaign in 12th place after picking up 49 points.
