Roy Hodgson dismisses reports Wilfried Zaha wants to leave Crystal Palace

Chelsea transfer news: Wilfried Zaha REJECTS new contract as he looks to force switch

Chelsea transfer news: Maurizio Sarri set to make final decision on Wilfried Zaha move

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly decide to withdraw from the race to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who could cost in the region of £75m.

The thing with Wilf is very simple.

It has been claimed Zaha has told his team-mates he wants to leave but Hodgson has denied the speculation.

"I'm afraid I prefer to stay in that world where I speak to the players and watch them train rather than follow what is happening in the mass media", he added.

The now 25-year-old played a key role in keeping them in the English Premier League last season after a disastrous start to the campaign that saw them lose their opening seven matches.

"It was good for our confidence to win this game, but the tactic now is to be ready for the Fulham game because that we are now at just a week before that game".

The Mirror Sport is reporting that the Ivory Coast worldwide has told his Palace teammates of his plans, and would be willing to submit a transfer request should the club continue to price him out of a move.

Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign the Ivorian winger as Tottenham are unwilling to meet Palace's asking price for the player.

And it now appears that this is what one Crystal Palace player seems eager to do, with a move that will better his position in London.

"But, as I say, he is contracted to us and he is our player and we have every intention of him continuing to be our player, at least while his contract with us".

"I do think the fee would have to be much bigger than what Chelsea are talking about".
