Doucoure is currently sidelined with an Achilles injury sustained against Luton in November but has joined the likes of Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise in committing his future to the club.

He said: ““I’m really happy to commit my future to Crystal Palace – I’ve enjoyed my time here so much already.

“We have a great group here, and I’m looking forward to getting back on the pitch as quickly as possible to play in front of the supporters of this fantastic football club.”

Eagles chairman Steve Parish added: “It is brilliant news that Cheick, who was such an outstanding performer for us last season, has signed this new contract.

“We have no doubt that, after such a fantastic start to life in red and blue, Cheick will continue to progress as a player in the years to come, and I couldn’t be happier to see him become the latest player to commit their future to Crystal Palace.”
