Crystal Palace Goalkeeper Has signed A new Contract

 Crystal Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita has signed a new two-and-a-half-year extension at Crystal Palace with the option of a further year

Guaita had been linked with a move to Real Sociedad in the Spanish press, with one article reporting the 34-year-old had signed a pre-contract agreement.

On Saturday evening, Palace manager Roy Hodgson said he was not aware of the reports, nor the fact Guaita’s contract was set to expire in the summer

Guaita has since signed a new deal, however, with the Spaniard stating he feels “settled” in London.

“I am so happy to extend my time at Crystal Palace with my contract until 2023,” Guaita told the club’s website.

“My family is really settled here in south London, and I have enjoyed my time with Roy, Deano, all the coaches, and my team-mates playing in the Premier League, and have a great relationship with the fans of Crystal Palace.”

Guaita has started every Premier League game for Palace this season, keeping four clean sheets, while he played all but three league games in 2019-20.

After coming through the youth ranks and starting his career at Valencia, he joined Palace from Getafe in 2018 and displaced Wayne Hennessey as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper midway through the 2018-19 campaign.
