Crystal Palace forward Marouane Chamakh is set to sign a new deal at Selhurst Park, according to the Guardian.

Chamakh, who turned 30 in January, began his career at French side Bordeaux having risen through their youth ranks.

There he made 230 league appearances, scoring an impressive 56 goals across a seven-year spell.

Having decided not to renew his contract in 2010, there was a large amount of Premier League interest in the Morocco international but he ultimately joined Arsenal as a free agent.

He endured a relatively modest spell with the north London outfit over three years, making 40 league appearances and scoring eight goals before moving to West Ham on loan in January 2013.

New beginning

Ian Holloway decided to strengthen his newly-promoted Crystal Palace side with the signing of Chamakh in the summer of 2013, and managed to strike a deal with Arsenal to contribute a portion of his wages for the year.

Chamakh played a pivotal role in Crystal Palace’s 11th placed finish, contributing five of their 33 league goals but it was believed that his wage demands were too high for Palace to match, so he was released at the end of the season.

However, a wage-cut has now been struck and it is believed that he will sign a new two-year deal shortly.
