James McArthur believes there is more to come from Crystal Palace this season after signing a contract extension.

The 30-year-old has committed himself to the Eagles until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

McArthur has played 136 games for Palace since signing from Wigan four years ago, and is now an integral part of Roy Hodgson’s side, which retained their Premier League status last season.

The Eagles picked up their second win of this campaign when securing a 1-0 victory at Huddersfield on Saturday.

McArthur feels there are plenty of reasons to be positive.

“I’m excited about the challenges that come. The manager has brought the best out of me from last season, and I really enjoy playing under him,” McArthur said in an interview with the club’s website.

“We need to take one game at a time. We know it is going to be tough, the Premier League is tough.

“The manager has put together a very good squad, where there is competition for places all over the field. I think we will get stronger and stronger.”

Palace chairman Steve Parish believes McArthur “is the epitome of a model professional” and “is a real team man.”

He added: “James has been a huge success at the club and embodies everything we are about at Crystal Palace. We are absolutely delighted that he has re-signed with us.”
