Wilfried Zaha gives definitive answer on his future at Crystal Palace

"Yep, I am."

Wilfried Zaha today put to bed any rumours of him leaving in the January transfer window after his Crystal Palace side took a point off Manchester City.

Palace became only the second side this season to stop City from winning, the last team to do so being Everton in the second week of the season, then managed by Ronald Koeman.

Today's 0-0 draw ended City's 18 game winning streak and Zaha, as always, had a big part to play in the result. It could have been even better had Luka Milivojević scored the penalty which Zaha won in stoppage time.

Unsurprisingly, given his incredible form since returning from injury, the big clubs are sniffing around Zaha again. City have been linked strongly in the build up to this January window, with a bid of around £40m being prepared.

But in his post match interview today, Zaha put to bed any rumours of him departing Selhurst Park this January.

He's staying put, for now at least. He could still leave in the summer, although Palace look likely to survive in the Premier League for another year now and he signed a new five year contract last summer.

And, as he has learned from his failed move to Manchester United in 2013, the grass isn't always greener.
