Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha is set to stay at the club for 'many years' after guiding the club to a convincing 2-0 win over Fulham, with both Roy Hodgson and the player himself quashing any talk of a departure.
According to the Daily Mail, Eagles boss Hodgson, who led the Cottagers to a Europa League final back in 2010, believes the Ivorian will be at Selhurst Park for the long run.
Zaha, who was of interest to Chelsea and Tottenham this summer, scored his side's second goal as they secured all three points at Craven Cottage, and Hodgson certainly didn't mince his words when discussing his talisman's importance to his side.
The 71-year-old said: "
"He's a south London, Crystal Palace player and he knows we really appreciate what he can do for us.
"Many teams have a player of that type, a player who is a talisman. Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho will have to ask the same question about their (Harry) Kane's, (Kevin) De Bruyne's and (Eden) Hazard's."
On the speculation linking the former Manchester United forward with a move away from SE25, the 25-year-old was dismissive, stating his intentions to give his all to his boyhood club.
Speaking to BBC Sport (via football.london), Zaha said: "
"I want to get myself better, and I don’t have time to think about the speculation.
"We are just taking every game as it comes, the main thing is taking our chances because we have pace in our team and we can counter on sides."
