Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha
Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha has rubbished the latest round of rumours that he will leave Selhurst Park at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international has eight goals and eight assists from 31 Premier League appearances this season, making him one of the Eagles’ top performing players.

Unsurprisingly he has been linked with a move away from the London club, with recent speculation claiming that new permanent Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to make Zaha his first signing.

The player famously left Palace for the Red Devils in 2013, but failed to establish himself at Old Trafford and went on loan to Cardiff City in 2014, where he was managed by Solskjaer at the time.

The likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund have also been rumoured to be interested in signing Zaha in the past year.

Despite all the column inches focusing on his future, Zaha insists he is committed to Palace (his contract at the club runs to June 2023) and is fully focused on his football.

"My future is at Palace. I am at Palace, I am not thinking about anything [else],” the player stated.

“I'm just playing my football and I will just see what the future holds for me," he added.

Zaha, who could well feature for the Ivory Coast’s Elephants at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in June and July, will look to star for Palace when they host champions Manchester City on Sunday 14 April.
