TEAMtalk understands that Crystal Palace star James McArthur is set to sign a new deal with the club.

The Eagles are set to reward the Scotland international midfielder with an extra 12-months.

The 32-year-old has become a key performer for Palace since arriving from Wigan in 2014.

Indeed, McArthur has made over 200 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals in the process.

He is already contracted until 2021, but is now set to sign an extension to that until 2022.
