Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni will leave the club at the end of the season after almost 15 years at Selhurst Park.
Speroni joined Palace from Dundee in 2004 and has made 405 appearances, the fourth most in the club's history.
The 39-year-old was club's player of the season four times and kept a club-record 112 clean sheets, including in both legs of the 2013 play-off semi-final as well as the final against Watford that saw the club promoted back to the Premier League.
Chairman Steve Parish said: "Julian has devoted the best 15 years of his playing career to our club, and will go down in the record books - but perhaps more importantly, will be remembered as a true club legend by all Palace fans and everyone at the club.
"You just don't get many people like Julian in elite football anymore - he is a model professional, ultra-committed, immensely loyal, and has set impeccable standards to his team-mates down the years.
"His contribution to this club cannot be overstated, and we will be eternally grateful for his service."
