Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman says Wilfried Zaha has become even better since he left Crystal Palace.

Freedman returned to south London less than three months after walking out on Palace when they were top of the table, and Zaha was the only bright spot for the Eagles.

Manchester United and Arsenal are both interested in signing Zaha and Freedman has tipped him to make it in the big time.

“Wilfried Zaha has surprised me. His performance levels keep on rising,” said Freedman, who started working with Zaha at the age of 14.

“His progression is that quick that not only can he go into a Premier League club right now but he can go into a top-four team – and play.”
