Eberechi Eze has agreed terms on a new long-term contract at Crystal Palace, sources have confirmed to 90min.
The attacking midfielder enjoyed a career-best campaign under Roy Hodgson in 2022/23, bagging 10 goals and four assists to reinforce his status as one of the most exciting players in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old’s form saw him called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and he went on to make substitute appearances for the Three Lions against Malta and Scotland.
Eze has recently been sidelined by injury, after picking up where he left off last season form wise, but returned to the Palace side last weekend to grab an assist in the 2-0 win over struggling Burnley at Turf Moor.
90min understands that Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, Newcastle United and West Ham United have all been tracking Eze’s progress, but there has always been hope in south London that he’d commit his future to the Eagles.
Sources have confirmed to 90min that Eze has now agreed new and improved terms at Selhurst Park which includes the tricky playmaker receiving a hefty wage rise – one that reflects his improved standing in the game and more than trebles the money he was on.
News of Eze’s new contract will be a welcome boost for Palace supporters, who also saw Michael Olise shun interest from Chelsea in the summer to sign a new long-term contract. The 21-year-old is yet to make an appearance in 2023/24 though, with a serious hamstring injury setting back his brisk progress.
