Chelsea have been long-term admirers of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and the Blues are expected to sign the attacker this January.
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has told Chelsea to forget any thoughts of trying to sign Wilfried Zaha this January.
Hodgson said: “Basically, I don’t need assurances, we aren’t trying to sell Wilfried Zaha.
“We want to keep Wilfried Zaha. What assurances can people give? I know no-one [at the club] is anxious to sell Wilfried Zaha.”
Hodgson added: “Of course you never know where bids are going to come from, and if they do, the board of directors will need to take it seriously.”
