Wayne Hennessey signs new Crystal Palace contract

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 31-year-old Wales international has made 89 Premier League appearances for the Eagles since signing in 2014, including 27 last season, as Roy Hodgson’s side avoided relegation.

“I’m really happy to commit my future to the club,” Hennessey told Palace’s official website. “I’ve always said how much I enjoy playing football here and the way we ended last season shows what we’re capable of achieving as a team.

“Now I just want to concentrate on preparing for the new season and play my part in helping the club push on to the next level.”

Hennessey follows in the footsteps of team-mate Joel Ward, who also signed a new three-year deal on Monday, while Palace have also been heavily linked with the signing of Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

In the other direction, Dubai-based club Al Nasr have signed Yohan Cabaye on a two-year deal while Premier League rivals Newcastle have held talks with Andros Townsend.

Palace get their season underway against fellow London club Fulham on August 11 at Craven Cottage, with their first home game against Liverpool the week after.
