Hodgson: Zaha shows 'no indication' of quitting Palace
- Crystal Palace manager has stated Wilfried Zaha has given him no indication he wishes to leave the club
- The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge according to recent reports
Asked if he knew anything about the rumours over Zaha's wish to join Chelsea, Hodgson told talkSPORT: “No, nothing at all on that. I don’t read those stories to be perfectly honest, they circulate all the time.
“I spoke to Wilf yesterday and he certainly gave me no indication it was true about wanting to quit the club. In fact, we were talking about how good the new signings were and how they would help us.
“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.
“The thing with Wilf is very simple. He’s very much an integral part of our plans. He’s very much an integral part of Crystal Palace Football Club.
“Everyone likes him. Everyone admires him, he knows that and I think he likes and respects the club as well.
“So, my hope and my plan absolutely is that he will stay. I’ll let the speculation continue and I will continue happy to work with him.”
