Wilfried Zaha insists he doesn’t want to leave Crystal Palace at the end of the campaign, despite being linked with some of the Premier League’s top clubs.

The 25-year-old is a product of Palace’s academy and he has spent the majority of his professional career with the Eagles.

Zaha made his senior debut in 2010 and he went on to feature 110 times in the league before departing for Manchester United in 2013.

However, he failed to settle at Old Trafford and returned to Palace, initially on loan in 2014, before signing permanently in 2015.

The Ivory Coast international has been key to helping Palace climb out of the bottom three in 2017-18 and his exploits have led to interest from the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson claims the club will do everything within its power to retain his services beyond this season, and it appears Zaha is also keen to remain at Selhurst Park.

Zaha told the club’s official website: “Crystal Palace is my home town and the support we have here is genuine support with families watching with their kids loving us as players so I don’t really see myself anywhere else.

“I am enjoying my football here and just focused on us being a stable club and not having to listen to all the speculation about us getting relegated.”

Palace are next in action on Saturday and can be backed at 2.10 to win when they host Leicester, who are priced at 3.60, while the draw is available at 3.60.
