Crystal Palace prepared to look at offers for Arsenal and Manchester United target Wilfried Zaha
England youngster is being sought by a host of Premier League clubs
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish says the Eagles are prepared to look at offers for Wilfried Zaha but expects the forward to remain at Selhurst Park beyond the January transfer window.
Zaha has become one of the hottest properties in English football with the 20-year-old enjoying a blistering season in which he has scored five goals and helped propel Palace toward the top of the Championship.
Among those linked with a move for Zaha are Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Parish said he does not expect Zaha to be sold this month.
"Right now we’re concentrating on trying to get out of this league and the best way of doing that is adding to what we’ve got, not losing players," he said.
"I think he will be a Palace player until the summer. He has said himself that he really wants to get promoted with the club.
"He is a smashing kid and he has been with us since he was 12. I know he wants to help us get promoted. You can see on the pitch how hard he is trying to achieve that.
"I think he will be a Palace player until the summer and then we will look at it."
However, Parish admitted that Palace are not in a position to dismiss all offers out of hand and any bids will be evaluated.
"Obviously, we will look at anything that anybody offers us because we would be mad not to.
"If we feel we can move the club forward from doing certain things, then we will. So, never say never. But right now we are focused on trying to keep everyone in the squad."
