Connor Wickham has signed a new deal at Crystal Palace until June 2021.
The 26-year-old striker, who has battled back from serious knee problems, only had 12 months left on his terms until he put pen to paper.
Wickham told the club’s website: “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.
“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.”
