Crystal Palace have ‘no interest’ in selling Zaha despite Champions League admission

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson says he has ‘no interest’ in selling Wilfried Zaha, despite the forward admitting he wants to play Champions League football.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park in recent months, and he recently admitted he wants to ‘experience’ the Champions League.

Zaha scored as Palace beat Arsenal 3-2 on Sunday, and has been in superb form for Hodgson’s side this season scoring nine league goals in total.

The 26-year-old’s form has attracted some of the division’s biggest clubs, including Arsenal and Manchester United, but despite Zaha’s admission he wants to play the highest level of European football, Hodgson insists the club are not interested in selling their prized asset.

“When the journalists pose a question about playing at a higher level, I don’t know how you’re supposed to answer,” Hodgson told Sky Sports.

“We have no interest and desire in selling Zaha.

“If he plays like he has done then it bodes well for the rest of the games and the future.”
