Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham have been told that transfer target Wilfred Zaha will not be moving anywhere in January.
The Premier League trio have all been linked with the Crystal Palace winger in recent weeks after he has put in a string of excellent performances, scoring four goals and providing one assist in his 14 appearances this season.
However, despite the reports linking him with a move away from Selhurst Park, Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed the Ivory Coast international will not be leaving the club.
Speaking to the club website, he said:
“I have assurances from the club owners and Chairman, Steve Parish, that is not going to happen. We want to keep all the players we have got and ideally want to add to the squad in the January transfer window to strengthen even more. We are not too concerned about any rumours which might circulate because he is going nowhere.
“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”.
