Crystal Palace forward Connor Wickham has signed a new contract with the club.

His current deal had just a year to run and Palace hope to see Wickham back in the first-team fold next season after a injury-plagued two years.

The 26-year-old suffered knee ligament damage at Swansea City in November 2016 and has since been hampered with a number of minor injuries.

The Hereford-born player told the Palace website: "Iím 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 Iíll be able to show that when fully fit Iím capable of playing a key part.

"It meant a lot that the club backed me after such a serious injury and I hope Iíll be able to repay that faith shown in me."

Wickham has netted 10 goals in 42 games since joining in a £7m move from Sunderland in August 2015.
