Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni's contract has been extended for another year until the end of next season.

Julian Speroni will remain at Selhurst Park for at least another year after extending his contract at the London club.

The Argentine goalkeeper will remain in SE25 following the activation of a contractual clause agreed by the player, his representatives and club.

This means Speroni, aged 36, will stay at Crystal Palace for a twelfth consecutive season after joining from Dundee United back in 2004.

"I have one more season on my contract and am really enjoying playing in the Premier League," Speroni told the official Crystal Palace website.

"I've said many times this is my home, I will retire here if I can."

Speroni's lengthy service at Selhurst Park has been rewarded with a testimonial against his former club Dundee on Tuesday 26th May 2015. Tickets for those interested are still available in Palace's Main Stand, Whitehorse Lane Stand and Holmesdale Road Stand.

A host of former Eagles stars will feature including Clinton Morrison, Danny Butterfield and Aki Riihilathi.

Testimonials are a great opportunity for football fans to celebrate an individual’s career at their beloved club. Speroni has been voted Crystal Palace Player of the Year four times since his arrival and will undoubtedly make his way into the club's history books.

In a previous interview with The Mirror, Speroni elaborated on how moving to the UK in order to ply his goalkeeping trade saved him from football violence in Argentina.
