Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni has committed his future to the club by signing a new contract.
The 35-year-old, who missed only one Barclays Premier League match last season, has agreed a new one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.
Speroni was one of Palace's stand-out players last season, as the club recovered from a disappointing start to claim an 11th-place finish. His 116 saves were the fourth highest in the Barclays Premier League last season (see below) and only six goalkeepers kept more than the 12 clean sheets Speroni managed.
"I'm delighted; this is my home," Speroni told the club website. "This is where I always wanted to be, so I'm really pleased.
"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."
The Argentinian goalkeeper has been with Palace for 10 years, having joined the Eagles from Dundee in 2004. He has made over 300 league appearances for the club, with 43 appearances in the Barclays Premier League.
Last month, Speroni won the Crystal Palace Player of the Year Award for the fourth time, becoming the first player in the club's history to do so.
