Roy Hodgson has admitted he would not welcome any late bids for Chelsea-linked Wilfried Zaha before Monday’s deadline.
Zaha was in the headlines over the summer transfer window for all the right reasons, as some of the biggest clubs in the game showed an interest in the wingers signature after another impressive campaign for Palace.
However, despite admitting on numerous occasions that he is interested in a big move, Palace stuck a massive price tag on the head of the winger and nobody wanted to pay the massive £80 million price tag that was placed on the winger.
But with the transfer deadline just a few days away, Hodgson has now come out and told the likes of the club that he will not welcome any late bids for the in-form striker.
“Well I have been told and I think Wilf has had it made clear to him that we are not interested in late bids,” he was quoted on TAlksport
“If it was going to happen, it would need to happen in a time frame which would give us a chance to see what we would want to do with the money.
“So close to the end of the transfer window, I would certainly hope it will not happen now and I want to continue working with him.”
We are big fans of Zaha and believe he could have brought something to this attack, he is wasted at Palace and needs to be at a big club like ours.
It is just a shame that we couldnt get a transfer deal done
