Joel Ward has signed a new three-year contract with Crystal Palace that will keep him at Selhurst Park until the summer of 2021.
The 28-year-old right-back was available on a free transfer as his previous deal expired at the end of last season.
However, Ward has made the decision to remain at the club he joined six years ago.
After agreeing the deal, he said: "I'm delighted to be re-signing. I've been here for six years now and this will take me just shy of a testimonial so I'm looking forward to what the future has in store.
"There's been some fantastic moments; it's been a great ride, and long may that continue. I wanted to stay here and be a part of it as I feel at home here, and it's important for us to keep moving forward.
"I want to continue to play for this club and set that bar as high as I can. As long as I put the boots on, I'll never stop trying to better myself and raise that bar."
