Wilfried Zaha content at Palace but is not ruling out a move

  Wilfried Zaha content at Palace but is not ruling out a move Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has admitted that he is happy at the club but failed to dismiss claims that he would leave the club in the future, according to Sky Sports. Zaha has been a vital player for the club throughout the season despite struggling with injuries. He’s scored 8 goals in 27 matches so far this campaign. Zaha has missed 8 games in the league and Palace haven’t scored a goal or won a single point in his absence. Zaha did spend a small amount of time at Manchester United in 2013 but, came straight back to the club and has had a fine impact on his side. The Palace talisman spoke about the specualtion linking him with a move: “There’s always going to be speculation. I am just trying to keep my head down, play my football. I am enjoying my football and I am contracted at Palace. I don’t really see myself anywhere [else]. I moved away when I was 19, 20, Whatever happened before happened and I have grown mentally, so that won’t scare me, if I get the opportunity to move away eventually, that will not scare me because of what happened in the past.

Wilfried Zaha insists he will not pursue reported interest from several Premier League heavyweights I' m enjoying my football, you can see how much I' m enjoying it," Zaha said. " This is my home and While champions City certainly boast the resources to make a compelling offer, Roy Hodgson says

Roy Hodgson says the club have no need to sell and the attacker himself is keen on remaining at Selhurst Park.

Wilfried Zaha insists he will not pursue reported interest from several Premier League heavyweights as he reaffirmed his desire to stay at Crystal Palace.

The Ivory Coast winger netted his ninth goal of the season in the final-day 2-0 win over West Brom that secured an 11th-place finish for Roy Hodgson's men.

His prominent role in the Eagles' revival from a poor start to the campaign has sparked speculation linking him with a big-money move to the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham.

But the 25-year-old, who had an unsuccessful stint at Manchester United between his two spells with Palace, appears set on remaining at Selhurst Park.

Zaha named Premier League player of the month for April

  Zaha named Premier League player of the month for April Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been named the Premier League player of the month for April. Twitter: BREAKING: @CPFC’s @wilfriedzaha wins @premierleague player of the month for April. #SSN https://t.co/dYIxYsG9NO (@SkySportsNews) Twitter: Four-goal @wilfriedzaha is your #PL Player of the Month for April! @PremierLeague https://t.co/Wej3Q2VWlJ (@EASPORTSFIFA) Zaha had a superb month as he netted four times and picked up an assist in Palace’s four Premier League matches in April. The winger has been a crucial part of Palace’s survival this season, and has become the first player outside the top six to receive the award during the current campaign. Palace looked doomed at the start of the season, but Roy Hodgson has led them to 11th in the table as it stands, with one game to go. Zaha missed the start of the season through injury but has gone on to score eight goals and provide three assists in the Premier League.

"I have no plans on leaving. I'm enjoying my football, you can see how much I'm enjoying it," Zaha said.

"This is my home and there's no reason for me to leave."

While champions City certainly boast the resources to make a compelling offer, Roy Hodgson says money will have no bearing on Zaha's future.

"He is an important figure for us and he knows how much we value him," the Palace boss told reporters.

"He has a long-term contract and is one of our best-paid players, and the last thing on anyone's minds is letting him go. We don't need to sell him."

Zaha's 70th-minute opener on Sunday and a quick second from Patrick van Aanholt consigned the already-relegated West Brom to a first defeat under caretaker boss Darren Moore.

The result did little to undermine the steadying presence Moore has provided since replacing Alan Pardew, although the former Baggies defender would not be drawn on his chances of a full-time appointment.

"For me to comment on my position is not right at this point," said Moore. "It is not for me to decide that. Everyone has been speculating and I will leave it as that."

Palace confident of keeping Chelsea target Wilfried Zaha .
Chelsea, along with a host of other top Premier League clubs, are interested in signing winger Wilfried Zaha in this window, but, according to Football.London, Crystal Palace are confident of keeping their man. It is no surprise the Ivorian has so many potential suitors, he was pivotal in Crystal Palace’s climb away from relegation places last season, scoring nine goals and providing nine assists. Palace boss Roy Hodgson believes the former Manchester United man will stay at Selhurst Park this summer: “This is his club and he knows how much we and the fans value him, and I am hopeful that this will remain as speculation. I don’t blame other clubs for coveting him, but he is ours, he is under contract here, and I believe he will still be our player when the season begins.” Zaha signed a new five-year deal last summer to put an end to any speculation, and there is now talk the London club are going to offer him yet another improved deal. Chelsea are still in the midst of a possible managerial change so any deal for Zaha will likely be on the back burner for now.
