Roy Hodgson insists Wilfried Zaha is happy at Crystal Palace despite speculation linking him with a move to Tottenham this summer.

Zaha put a host of top clubs on alert this week by revealing his ambition to play Champions League football.

Spurs have been heavily linked with a swoop for Zaha over the past three years, but have not managed to get a deal over the line.

Paris Saint-Germain are keeping tabs on the player’s situation and would look to pip the north Londoners to his signature if he was made available.

But Eagles boss Hodgson believes the Ivory Coast forward is settled at Selhurst Park, as evidenced by his pivotal goal scoring performance in Sunday’s 3-2 win at Arsenal.

“I think he’s a very good player, but the bottom line is this: he’s a Crystal Palace player, and he’s certainly happy at Crystal Palace as you saw today,” said Hodgson.

“That wasn’t the performance of a guy looking to get away from his club, I would say quite the reverse.

“He’s on a four-year contract, he’s one of our highest-paid players and he’s absolutely adored by the fans and everyone in south-east London.

“As far as I’m concerned I’m looking forward to working with him not only in the near future, but I’m looking forward to seeing him in the Crystal Palace shirt for many years to come.

“But life throws things up and we’ll see what happens.”
