Wilfried Zaha in talks with Crystal Palace over new big money deal after failing to force move away

WILFRIED ZAHA is in talks with Crystal Palace about a new contract — after failing to get a move away.

The winger told the Selhurst Park club that he wanted to join a bigger club when he turned down their offer of a new £125,000-a-week deal earlier in the summer.

But he remains at the Eagles after they slapped a whopping £70million price tag on his head.


And he is now in talks with the club about improving his terms.

Local hero Zaha, 25, came through the South Londoners’ academy and helped fire them back into the Premier League before he was snapped up by Manchester United for £15m in 2013.

But the move never worked out and after being loaned out to Cardiff he rejoined Palace on loan a year later.

Zaha made his Selhurst return permanent in 2015 and has been the club’s best player in the last two seasons.

He also helped get their new campaign off to a winning start by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 victory at London rivals
Fulham on Saturday .


Eagles boss Roy Hodgson praised Zaha’s attitude afterwards and said the club hope he will stay put for a long time.

The Ivory Coast forward signed a new five-year deal worth £110,000 a week in 2017 — but he is now set to be rewarded once again.
