Wilfried Zaha expected to stay at Crystal Palace despite speculation - Roy Hodgson

Wilfried Zaha expected to stay at Crystal Palace despite speculation - Roy Hodgson

City still retain an interest in Mahrez, it iis reported, but Zaha, who would be considered a homegrown player under Premier League rules, has moved to the top of his attacking wish-list.

"I am very proud of what the players and the staff have done", Hodgson said on Friday as he spoke to the assorted media. I'm enjoying my football, you can see how much I'm enjoying it.

Zaha has developed into a modern-day Palace legend in his two stints at Selhurst Park, first helping the club secure promotion to the top-flight before he was signed by Manchester United.

The Eagles centre-back has made 27 Premier League appearances this season and has been well-placed to experience all the ups and downs of a season which could end with a to-10 finish on Sunday when the club host relegated West Bromwich Albion at Selhurst Park.

Roy Hodgson insists selling star winger Wilfried Zaha is "the last thing on anyone's mind" at Crystal Palace.

"I hope he will be here long after I am".

"Obviously he's a London boy so hopefully he wants to stay in London and play and I think Palace would be the right club".

Earlier this week, Zaha was named the Premier League's Player of the Month for April.

Zaha picked up the award on Wednesday night at the end-of-season club awards held at Boxpark, Croydon - the third straight year the Ivory Coast worldwide has claimed the accolade. "I had no doubt that we'd get back to ourselves".

Palace boss Roy Hodgson seems to have already accepted the possibility of the 25-year-old's departure, after having recently admitted: "It's inevitable we are going to lose a few good players in the summer". Losing the first seven games without scoring a goal but still surviving was Palace's version of Manchester City's 100 points.
