Marouane Chamakh has put pen to paper on a new two-year-deal at Crystal Palace that will see the striker stay with Premier League club until the summer of 2016, The Daily Mail reports.

Chamakh scored six goals for the Eagles last season, including a burst of three in as many games. His first goal came in only his second appearance for the club, in a 2-1 away loss to Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

This proved to be the 30-year-old's only goal under the management of Ian Holloway, who was later replaced by Tony Pulis in November.

Success under Pulis

With Palace sitting bottom of the table, Pulis steered the Selhurst Park club to an 11th place finish and deployed Chamakh in an unfamiliar role behind the main striker.

This change proved instrumental in the former Arsenal flop's season, as he scored five more goals that made the Moroccan a favourite with the Selhurst Park faithful.

Chamakh had previously hinted at staying with the Premier League outfit before the end of the 2013-14 season.

Chamakh gets his wish

"My first choice would be to continue my adventure with Crystal Palace,' he told the official programme.

"My priority is to stay here. The adventure here is not over. We've had a good season and built something really, really strong. I hope that will continue."

The former Bordeaux star has got his wish. He will now join up with his Palace teammates for pre-season training in Austria and the club's supporters will be hoping for a similarly successful season from their striker next time out.
