Crystal Palace extend Cheick Doucoure until 2029!

Crystal Palace FC have announced that Cheick Doucouré has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a new deal in south London which runs until summer 2029.

After joining from RC Lens in 2022, Doucouré adapted seamlessly to English football, playing 35 times; completing more tackles and interceptions than any other Palace player; and being voted by supporters as the club’s 2022/23 Player of the Season.

An injury sustained against Luton Town in November has limited Doucouré to just 12 appearances this season, but the Mali international – working hard towards completing his rehabilitation – has now committed his long-term future to the club.

Doucouré joins fellow internationals Ebere Eze, Michael Olise, Sam Johnstone and Jordan Ayew in signing new contracts with Crystal Palace this season.

Chairman Steve Parish said, “It is brilliant news that Cheick, who was such an outstanding performer for us last season, has signed this new contract.”

“We have no doubt that, after such a fantastic start to life in red and blue, Cheick will continue to progress as a player in the years to come, and I couldn’t be happier to see him become the latest player to commit their future to Crystal Palace.”

After signing the contract, Doucouré added, “I’m really happy to commit my future to Crystal Palace – I’ve enjoyed my time here so much already.”

“We have a great group here, and I’m looking forward to getting back on the pitch as quickly as possible to play in front of the supporters of this fantastic football club.”
