Transfer news: Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish is confident of keeping Wilfried Zaha until the end of the season but admits the club will listen to offers in the January transfer window.

Zaha’s impressive performances this campaign have caught the eye of a number of the Premier League’s leading clubs, and the 20-year-old has admitted he would love to play in the top flight.

But Parish is desperate for the young England star to stay in south London and help the Eagles win promotion to the Premier League.

“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,” Parish told Talk Sport.

“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. 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.”
