Crystal Palace are reportedly set to hand James McArthur a contract extension in order to keep him at the club for another year.

James McArthur is reportedly set to extend his current Crystal Palace contract in the near future.

The assistant captain has been a regular within the squad this season, having made 11 appearances so far in the Premier League.

McArthur has featured in a midfield three with Conor Gallagher and Cheikhou Kouyate throughout the campaign, with Patrick Vieira placing his faith in the experienced footballer.

The 34-year-old is now expected to extend his contract with the Eagles as the new manager sees it as a reward for his efforts, according to London World.

McArthur's current deal with the club is set to end this season, meaning if he does not put pen to paper on a new deal he shall be available to leave for free.

After missing the recent 3-3 draw with Burnley due to injury, it is unclear whether or not the midfielder will feature this weekend when the Eagles face Aston Villa.
