Crystal Palace head coach Roy Hodgson has, on Friday, provided an update on the future of talisman Wilfried Zaha.
The future of wide-man Zaha, of course, has long been up in the air.
This comes with the Ivorian’s terms at long-time club Palace due to come to a close upon the conclusion of the campaign.
It is widely understood that the powers that be at Selhurst Park have already tabled a lucrative contract renewal offer to the club’s star man.
Zaha, however, is yet to provide a definitive response, culminating in suggestions that the explosive wide-man’s time in south London could finally be in line to come to an end in 2023.
To this point, rival Premier League clubs have been most frequently tipped as destinations for Zaha, with capital pair Arsenal and Chelsea both long-term admirers.
If the latest comments on the part of the aforementioned Roy Hodgson are anything to go by, however, then such admirers could yet miss out.
This comes with Palace still hopeful of Zaha changing his mind, amid ongoing contract talks.
“The club has had talks with Zaha over a new deal. Those talks will continue,” Hodgson began.
“I have no idea what the outcome will be. All I can hope for is you’ll be able to see him playing for Crystal Palace next season.”
