Ghana’s Schlupp signs contract extension at Palace

Ghana’s Schlupp signs contract extension at Palace

Defender Jeffery Schlupp has extended his stay with Premier League outfit Crystal Palace by signing a contract extension, the club confirmed on Friday.

The Ghana international was injured for most parts of the 2019-20 campaign restricting him to 17 league appearances as Crystal Palace finished the English top flight season in 14th.

Despite his struggle for form, Schlupp ended his third full season at Selhurst Park with a bang as his strike salvaged a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur on July 26.

The 27-year-old Schlupp has made 97 appearances for Palace since joining the club in January 2017, and said of his extended deal: “Last season was a difficult one at times due to injuries.

“However, I’m delighted to have finished it off with a goal against Spurs, feeling 100% and extending my time with the club.

“I’m already looking forward to hitting the ground running in a few weeks’ time when the season restarts.”

Schlupp joined the Eagles on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Leicester City in 2017.
