Transfe news: Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has insisted that Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Newcastle and Tottenham would have to spend big to sign Wilfried Zaha.
The 19-year-old has been in scintillating form this season and has scored four goals in the Eagles’ last two games and the Premier League giants had been linked with an £11million move.
Given that Zaha signed a long term deal last season, the Eagles are in no pressure to sell their man unless they receive an offer they can’t refuse.
“I know he is worth more than £11m. You’re getting him cheap if you get him for that,” Freedman said.
“Wilfried has dedicated himself to the game and is heading in the right direction. We give young players the chance to play and that’s what he is doing now.
“It’s a matter of time until he plays in the Premier League and let’s hope that is with Crystal Palace.
“As we speak right now he’s on a long contract and he’s very happy.”
