Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is the subject of fierce interest from numerous clubs and there remains some uncertainty regarding his future. Palace boss Roy Hodgson hopes to keep the England international. 

With both Premier League duo Arsenal and Tottenham reportedly in the race to sign 'Wilf', Roy Hodgson has taken the time to speak to the press regarding his plan to keep hold of the former Man Utd player.

"Keeping Wilf will be a club issue. He is not going to stay because of my blue eyes," said Hodgson. 

"He will stay because he likes playing at Selhurst Park and he thinks this is the right club for him. A lot will depend on what offers come to the club.

"The only thing I can say with any certainty is that there is no one at the club who wants him to leave."

It is understood that several clubs have been in contact with the Eagles regarding Zaha's availability and have been pushed back in their attempts to sign the player.
