Crystal Palace F.C., through their official website has announced the extension of Ebere Eze’s contract, solidifying his commitment to the club until 2027.
Eze’s impressive performances have earned him recognition as one of the Premier League’s most exciting forward talents. His dedication to the club was celebrated as he marked his 100th appearance against Fulham in September. Last season, Eze emerged as Palace’s top scorer, showcasing his skills in all 38 Premier League matches, contributing 10 goals and four assists.
It’s noteworthy that Ebere Eze, in addition to his accomplishments in England and his call-up for the Three Lions, also holds Nigerian citizenship. The extension of his contract not only strengthens Crystal Palace’s attacking prowess but also underscores Eze’s pride in representing both the England national team and his Nigerian heritage.

The new deal sees Eze remaining with the club until 2027, emphasizing the club’s belief in his continued growth and contribution.
The 25-year-old attacker, who originally joined Palace from Queens Park Rangers in August 2020 for a reported fee of €3.5 million, has become a key figure in the team’s lineup throughout the last seasons. According to Transfermarkt, his current market value is estimated at €48 million.
At the moment, there is no official information on the player’s new salary, but during the summer transfer window, it was rumored that Palace, in order to secure the striker’s services, were ready to offer €5,6 million annually.
Expressing his excitement about the new contract, Eze stated, “I’m delighted to have signed for the club for another three-and-a-half years. I’m now in my fourth season with the club and I’ve enjoyed it so far. I’m loving every moment. Hopefully, the fans can expect more of the same in the future, God willing – I’m praying for exciting performances, fun times, goals, and wins.”
The announcement of Eze’s contract extension reflects Crystal Palace’s commitment to building a formidable team for the future, with Eze as a pivotal part of their long-term plans. Fans can look forward to witnessing more of Eze’s skillful and entertaining performances in the seasons to come.
