Wilfried Zaha has agreed a five-year contract extension at Crystal Palace.
The Ivory Coast winger had been linked with a big-money switch to Tottenham this summer.
But Zaha, 24, agreed terms on a new £110,000-a-week deal to end speculation.
He said: “Palace is in my heart and I don’t think the story is over. I spoke with Steve [Parish] and I think I still have more to give this club.
“The supporters have been amazing and I want us to do more than just stay in the league next year.”
Zaha has been named the Eagles’ player of the season two years in a row after returning from a disastrous spell at Manchester United.
