Blackstars Striker Kwesi Appiah extend Crystal Palace Deal


Crystal Palace and Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah has signed a two-year contract extension with the Eagles.

The attacker, who recently impressed at the Africa Cup of Nations for Ghana where he won his first cap during the tournament, will now remain contracted to Palace until the summer of 2017.

Appiah, 24, has played 10 times for Palace since signing from Margate in 2012. During that time he has had successful loan spells at the likes of Cambridge United, Notts County and AFC Wimbledon, as well as appearing four times for his country so far in 2015.

On his new deal, the striker said:

“It’s been a great year for me – I did well on loan at Cambridge United and on the back of that I got a call up to the Ghanaian national team which I’m thankful for.

“It’s put me in good stead coming back to Crystal Palace after the Africa Cup of Nations so the season has gone from strength to strength.

“Myself and Alan Pardew have had a few chats since I’ve come back and he’s been very complimentary about my game, he’s taken to a me a little bit and asked me to do a few things to prove myself to him and earn this contract and it seems as though I’ve done that so I’m delighted.”
