Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been impressive this season and been key to Palace’s resurgence under Roy Hodgson.

The 25-year-old is reportedly attracting interest ahead of the January transfer window with Chelsea said to be preparing a bid for him.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson doesn’t think he can hold down the Ivory Coast international if Chelsea come calling.

Hodgson admits: “I don’t think as a manager you can ever give guarantees on anything.

It’s a great credit to the club and to Wilf that if there are rumours circulating of so-called bigger clubs looking at him and maybe making a bid we should be pleased about that.

“It means he is doing his job, he’s helping us get the points we’ve been getting.

“If the day comes when one of those rumours becomes the truth, I’ll come to terms with it and deal with it at that moment in time.

“If you ask me do I want Wilf to stay at the club then I’m like the rest of the Crystal Palace supporters, of course I do.”
