JERMAINE Easter has put pen-to-paper on a 12-month contract extension.
Boss Ian Holloway stated in February that he would be offering the striker a new deal and terms were finalised to keep him at The Den several weeks ago.
Easter was due to become a free agent in the summer.
"Jermaine lifts our group whether he comes off the bench or not," Holloway said, when first confirming that he wanted to keep hold of the frontman.
"His training is something that is completely and utterly outstanding. I let Jermaine leave Palace because I couldn't guarantee him a new deal.
"I liked him but somebody else didn't. I am giving him a new contract because the whole atmosphere at Palace dipped after he left. I've already agreed to give him another year."
