Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has committed his long-term future to the club.

Palace have announced on their official website that Benteke has put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension.

The 30-year-old Belgium international striker joined the Eagles from Liverpool in the summer of 2016.

The former Aston Villa star made 21 starts and nine substitute appearances in the Premier League for Palace this season, scoring 10 goals and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

Benteke told Palace’s official website after committing his future: “I’m happy and proud to commit my future to Crystal Palace. Five years already and still a lot more to come

“We have a great group of players and staff, and I’m looking forward to the season ahead and playing in front of our fans again.”

Palace chairman Steve Parish added: “Christian has been an integral part of consolidating our position as an established Premier League club over the last five years.

“He is an outstanding professional and has more than proven that he still has the quality and the hunger to perform for our club at the highest level, and I couldn’t be happier to see him in red and blue for another two seasons.”

Betfair has rated Palace’s chances of getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of next season at 9/4.
