Zaha price set at £50m

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has said only an offer of £50million would convince him to cash in on star winger Wilfried Zaha.

Tottenham made an attempt to land Zaha before the closure of the transfer window, but the Eagles threw out their offer, which was reported to be in the region of £15million.

Palace chairman Steve Parish insisted the player would not be sold at any price, and they stayed true to their word as Zaha remained at Selhurst Park.

It remains to be seen if any fresh offers will be made in January, but Palace’s stance will remain the same, and Pardew insists there will be no issues with the player himself.

“Of course I sat down and spoke to him,” Pardew said. “I want someone to blow the doors off if they’re going to come for him, not have him go somewhere as a squad player at £16-17m.

“When you see someone put £50m that’s when you think about it. That assist for the first goal – I can’t ask for more.

“Trust me, I’ve been in the position when you can’t get anything out of a player. Us Premier League managers pull our hair out. That’s not been the case with Wilf.

“If I was to mark him out of 10 I would give him a 10, that’s how good his attitude’s been.”
