Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson gives Wilfried Zaha's transfer update

Reuters  Matthew Childs

"Once we get through game six, and next week once I've spoken to the chairman and the board of directors, then I'm in a clearer position where I can share the news, whatever that may be, with you".

"In the second half we were quicker and more incisive, and looked like we were going to score even before Wilf [Zaha] put us in the lead".

"In particular I was very pleased with the two full-backs", Hodgson said.

The midfielder's contract expires this summer, and while manager Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to retain him, he also expects him to receive offers from elsewhere.

"We didn't start the best, but I knew that the players we have, we were good enough to get where we are now", Zaha said.


When Aaron Wan-Bissaka dispossessed Ahmed Hegazi on the right wing and fed McArthur, the midfielder squared to Zaha who, from in front of goal but while struggling for balance, aimed towards the bottom corner before watching Foster stick his leg out to save.

Spurs are most likely to make the first move on Zaha, as Man City's first choice would be Riyad Mahrez, and Chelsea and Arsenal still need to resolve their manager situations.

"This is his club and he knows how much we and the fans value him".

Provider for the opener, it was the left-back Van Aanholt who applied the finishing touch as he got on the end of a neat one-touch move, rounded Foster and squeezed the ball home to round off Palace's impressive end to the season. "We could do that on Sunday is hard to even get into perspective after that terrible start we had but it is credit to the lads and the manager and everyone at the club really that's done this".

Palace missed out on a place in the top ten on goal difference. The Eagles are unbeaten in their last five games, winning three games and picking up 11 points.
