Defender Ramage and midfielder Garvan played a key role in Palace's successful promotion season, with the former playing 40 games and the latter 30 for the Eagles.

Garvan featured in Monday's dramatic play-off final victory over Watford, while Ramage was an unused substiute at Wembley having been displaced as a regular starter at by Daniel Gabbidon in April.

But despite the former Newcastle centre-back's lack of action, he has opted to extend his stay at Selhurst Park by a further two years, with Garvan also signing on for an extra two years.

Palace also confirmed that loanees Jazz Richards and Alex Nimely have returned to respective parent clubs Swansea City and Manchester City.
