Cork man Damien Delaney has penned a fresh one-year contract at Crystal Palace.

The 34-year-old joined Palace back in 2012 while Dougie Freedman was manager and has earned a reputation as a reliable central defender who has remained a regular starter since making the first of 157 appearances.

Delaney has been capped nine times for the Republic of Ireland but didn't make the plane to France despite suggesting he was available for selection in the run-up to the Euros.

He had backed away from playing for Ireland last August, but Martin O'Neill chose to stick with the men who served him qualification as Delaney's hopes of a return to the fray were crushed.

Goalkeeper Julian Speroni has also signed a new contract to remain at Selhurst Park until 2017.

The future of the Argentinian, 37, had been the subject of speculation during the past season after he lost his place in Alan Pardew's first XI and was at one point third choice.

He has played 388 times since joining the club in 2004, equalling John Jackson's club appearance record as a goalkeeper in all competitions on the final day of the Premier League season.

As Palace's longest-serving player, it is expected he will set a new record at some point during 2016-17.
