Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has signed a new contract with the Eagles.

Hodgson, 71, has committed to the club by putting pen to paper on a one-year extension that keeps him at Selhurst Park until the summer of 2020.

The former England boss took up the reins in September last year with Palace bottom of the table and without a win from their first four matches.

But after the worst start in Premier League history, Hodgson not only managed to steer the team to safety, but an impressive 11th-place finish.

Speaking to the Palace website, Hodgson said: "I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace. It is a club that has been close to my heart since I was a youngster growing up in the borough of Croydon, and having stood on the terraces in the 1950s, it is a wonderful thing to be managing my boyhood club all these years later.

"We can be proud of our achievements last season in turning things around despite a poor start, but this year we want to ensure we don’t endure the same struggles.

"I am thrilled that I have the support of the owners, who believe that I am the right man to help this club move forward and I will do everything I can to make that happen."
