Crystal Palace Goalkeeper Speroni Signs New Deal

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni signs a new contract with the Premier League outfit, following an impressive 2013/14 season.

The 35-year-old has agreed a new one-year deal (with the option of a further 12-month extension) at Palace, who finished last season on 11th position after a poor start- surviving relegation in grande style for the first time in five tries.

“I’m delighted; this is my home,” Speroni told the club’s official website. “This is where I always wanted to be, so I’m really pleased.

The Argentinean made 116 saves- the fourth best in the league last season- and kept 12 clean sheets in 37 matches on his track to winning the ‘Eagles’s’ player of the year for a fourth time.

Speroni joined Palace from Scotish club Dundee United in 2004. He has made 43 Premier League appearances with the Selhurst Park outfit, which regained promotion to the top tier last season.

“The expectation will grow as long as we stay in the Premier League, but we are going to do our best, of course, try to stay in the league again and finish as high as we can.”
