Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has signed a contract extension until the end of next season.
The former England and Fulham boss initially arrived on a two-year deal when he succeeded Frank De Boer in September 2017.
Hodgson said: “I am delighted that the club and I have reached agreement to extend my contract.
“I am proud of what we have achieved since I was appointed two and a half years ago, and I look forward to us working together for the foreseeable future.
“Everyone knows how I feel about the club that I supported as a boy, I feel a special bond with the supporters and know that myself, the owners and the players are all working together to achieve the same goal.”
Eagles chairman Steve Parish said: “I’m delighted that Roy has agreed to extend his contract with the club, and has reinforced his commitment to help us extend this period of unprecedented stability in the top flight.
“As I’ve said on many occasions, it is extra special that Roy has a long connection with the club and local community.
“He has established excellent relationships with everyone at the club, and crucially, the players trust and respect him.”
