Julian Speroni has signed a new one-year contract with Crystal Palace.
The veteran goalkeeper was a free agent at the start of July but had been offered a further 12 months by the SE25 outfit.
Speroni arrived in South London from Dundee in the summer of 2004 and is the club’s longest-serving player.
He has played 403 matches for Palace and won Player of the Year a record four times.
Speroni, 39, told the club’s website: “I’ve been here so long at Crystal Palace that it’s my home, so I’m really pleased.
“It’s an honour and a pleasure for me to play in front of our fans, the love and support they’ve shown me over all these years has been magnificent and I just can’t thank them enough.”
