Crystal Palace have extended the contracts of goalkeepers Wayne Hennessey and Julian Speroni.

Wales international Hennessey, who ended last season as the club's number one, has signed a new three-year deal with the club.

Veteran Speroni, meanwhile, signed a one-year extension to continue his 14-year association with the club.

The Eagles are well stocked between the sticks next season, with Vicente Guaita having completed a free transfer from Getafe.

Hennessey was delighted with his new deal, telling the club's official website: ''I'm really happy to commit my future to the club. 

"I've always said how much I enjoy playing football here and the way we ended last season shows what we're capable of achieving as a team.''

The 39-year-old Speroni was similarly pleased, adding: ''It's an honour and a pleasure for me to play in front of our fans, the love and support they've shown me over all these years has been magnificent and I just can't thank them enough."
