The 20-year-old is Fulham's eleventh signing of the summer after Jean Michaël Seri, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Alfie Mawson, Fabri, Maxime Le Marchand, Joe Bryan, André Schürrle, Luciano Vietto, Sergio Rico and Calum Chambers.

Speaking to the Palace website, Hodgson said: "I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace". Manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be able to count on record signing Jean Michael Seri as well as former German global Andre Schurrle.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at Selhurst Park until 2020. Among the Eagles new signings are Cheikhou Kouyate, goalkeeper Vicente Guaita and Jordan Ayew - all in contention to feature on Saturday.
