Wilfried Zaha rubbishes rumours of a Crystal Palace exit this summer

He's not f***ing leaving

Death, taxes and Wilfried Zaha constantly being linked with a move away from Crystal Palace. Those are the only things we can be certain of in this chaotic time.

Last summer it was Tottenham, this season he is being linked with a return to Manchester United, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rejuvenate the squad.

In January, Borussia Dortmund were sniffing around him, on the look out for a replacement for Christian Pulisic, who will join Chelsea in the summer for £57 million.

But Zaha has dismissed rumours that he will be jumping ship this summer, insisting that his future lies in south London, at the club where he has become a local hero.

"My future is at Palace. I am at Palace, I am not thinking about anything [else]. I'm just playing my football and I will just see what the future holds for me," he said.

The Ivory Coast international signed a new deal with Palace last August, keeping him at the club until 2023, by which time he will be 29.

If any team were to have a chance of tempting Palace into selling their most valuable asset, they would have to cough up somewhere in the region of £70m just to get Steve Parish to pick up the phone.

Given his importance to Palace, and the role he would play at any of the Premier League's top six, that is unlikely.
