Eberechi Eze Extends His Contract With Crystal Palace




Nigerian-born England international, Eberechi Eze has extended his contract with Premier League club, Crystal Palace.

Earlier today, November 10, Crystal Palace announced that Eberechi Eze has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal which will keep him at the club until June 30, 2027.

This development is a big plus for Crystal Palace who has been battling to keep the English midfielder away from top European clubs who have been making efforts to lure him away from the club.

Recall that Eberechi Eze joined Crystal Palace from Queens Park Rangers for a transfer fee worth £19.5 million in 2020.

Eze was the team’s top scorer last season with 10 goals in the Premier League and four assists.

After the Nigerian-born English midfielder extended his contract with Palace, the club’s coach, Roy Hodgson said, “I’m delighted for the club and pleased for Eberechi as well, because he’s done so well in the three years he’s been with us and it’s great to know he’s pledged his future to the club.

“That says a lot about his confidence in where the club is going and what we can achieve here because his ambition is to establish himself in the English national team and he obviously believes we can get him there.

“I would like to think it says a lot about the club and how the club is progressing.”

Recall that the reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City indicated interest in signing Eberechi Eze during last summer’s transfer window.

Since making his debut for the Three Lions of England in June 2023, Eze has made two appearances for the country.

Eze suffered a career-threatening Achilles tendon rupture in 2021, but he has since healed and grown to become one of Palace’s key players.
