Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur has signed a new contract.

The three-year deal keeps the Scotish international at Selhurst Park until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

The 30-year-old, who joined from Wigan four years ago, has been an ever-present in Roy Hodgson's side this season and feels the manager has brought out his best qualities.

He told the Palace website: "Iím very pleased to commit myself to the club for another three years. Itís great, and Iím excited about the challenges that come.

"The manager has brought the best out of me from last season, and I really enjoy playing under him. We have a very good squad where there is competition for places all over the field, and I think weíll get stronger and stronger."

McArthur found the net seven times last season from his 35 appearances and has turned out 135 times overall for the Eagles, scoring 16 goals.

Chairman Steve Parish added: "James is the epitome of a model professional. He sets a brilliant example to other players, and is a real team man.

"James has been a huge success at the club and embodies everything we are about at Crystal Palace FC. We are absolutely delighted that he has resigned with us."
