"There was some interest from other clubs over the summer.

"I spoke to the chairman and the manager about their plans for the future and after hearing what they had to say, I knew I was at the right club."

Several Palace players have signed new deals over the summer including James McArthur, Brede Hangeland, Jason Puncheon and Damien Delaney.
