Marouane Chamakh has penned a new two-year deal with Crystal Palace. The 30-year-old Moroccan striker was one of the stars of last year's campaign, scoring six goals for the Eagles in all competitions as they finished 11th in the Premier League. Manager Tony Pulis utilised the former Arsenal man in a playmaker role, a deeper position than what the frontman occupied at the Emirates Stadium. Before the end of last season, Chamakh stated his intentions to stay with the Eagles. "My first choice would be to continue my adventure with Crystal Palace. My priority is to stay here," he told the club. "The adventure here is not over. We've had a good season and built something really, really strong. I hope that will continue. "I've played more football this year and that's why I came here. It was a challenge to play regularly, to enjoy my football and have fun again. "I lost that before, so it was really important for me to find that emotion again. I needed that, I wanted that and I am so happy."
