Zaha's Going Nowhere - Hodgson

Zaha's Going Nowhere - Hodgson

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has said that Wilfried Zaha will be going 'nowhere' in the January transfer window.

With speculation about Zaha almost every window Hodgson was quoted a few days ago as saying that the 25 year old might be lured away if a substantial offer for his services came in, but the BBC have him clarifying those comments, presumably after further talks with Chairman Steve Parish.

'I've assurances from the owners and chairman Steve Parish, it's not going to happen. We are not too concerned about any rumours because he is going nowhere.'

Zaha was voted the club's Player of the Season in 2016/17 and he's likely to retain that this campaign following his return from injury coinciding with an uplift in for by Palace in what has otherwise been a disappointing first half of 2017/18.

Having signed a new five year deal back in May it would certainly take a ridiculous offer for the club to even be tempted into a sale.

'Wilfried has been absolutely excellent for us in this recent good run we have had and of course he is the iconic Crystal Palace player having been with us for so many years and being a local hero. He is doing everything he can to try and keep us out of the relegation zone and he is going to have to keep producing those type of performances for many more games because we have a long fight ahead of us.'
