Zaha insists his future is at Crystal Palace

Zaha insists his future is at Crystal Palace Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has dismissed rumours that he is looking to leave the Eagles this summer, according to a report on Goal. The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move back to Manchester United in recent weeks. But Zaha has insisted that he is fully focused on the task at hand with Palace. He said: “My future is at Palace.” “I am at Palace, I am not thinking about anything [else]. I’m just playing my football and I will just see what the future holds for me.” The forward signed a new contract with Palace in August and the deal is scheduled to expire in 2023.

Crystal Palace are never a side to overlook in the Premier League, especially when visiting the Eagles’ home at Selhurst Park.

Although they have struggled to certify themselves as anything other than a mid-table team over the last few seasons – their best finish being 10th place in 2015 – their ability to keep even the best teams at bay is often astonishing.

They did so this term after reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, defeating London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the process, only to bow out to a tough Watford side.

Crystal Palace will reportedly sign Jordan Ayew permanently

Crystal Palace will reportedly sign Jordan Ayew permanently Crystal Palace will complete the permanent signing of Jordan Ayew in the summer, according to an exclusive report from Football Ghana. The Eagles signed the forward on an initial season-long loan deal ahead of the current campaign, with Swansea City allowing him to depart temporarily following their relegation to the Championship. Ayew has been a rotational option for Roy Hodgson throughout the season, but it seems the experienced manager has identified value in keeping hold of the striker beyond this season.

Roy Hodgson is hoping to eclipse the Houdini act he once performed at Fulham by plotting his ‘greatest escape’ from Premier League relegation with improving Crystal Palace .

Crystal Palace are now seven points clear of the relegation zone after two goals from Christian Benteke Liverpool v Crystal Palace : Premier League – as it happened. Getting to the end of the season against a plethora of similar teams who will offer the same challenges as today will be torture.

What they lack is an attacking threat that can properly challenge the top half of the table and earn more points to help challenge for European qualification.

Their star player, Wilfried Zaha, has accumulated plenty of interest from the top six clubs over recent transfer windows.

With eight goals and eight assists this season, the Ivorian is a vital part of the Palace attack; should they let him go this summer, it is vital they begin to look for a worthy replacement.

In any case, though, the Eagles need more attacking muscle. Here are five players who would add something different to Roy Hodgson’s squad.

Palace youngster Wan-Bissaka on United wish list.
Manchester United have struggled defensively this year and with club captain Antonio Valencia set to leave the club, their attention has turned to Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka. According to The Mirror, United are eyeing Wan-Bissaka and Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier. The youngster has been impressive since forcing his way in to the first team and has been one of Palace’s more consistent players. The attacking right back has also gained interest from Manchester City, as they look to add some more youth to their current squad. Manchester United’s 4-0 loss against Everton on Sunday made it clear that they need to improve.
