Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman has taunted Newcastle United over their interest in Wilfried Zaha.

Freedman says they are not a big enough club to lure the England Under-19 forward.

He said: "Wilfried is better than a Newcastle. I know the chairman won't accept four, five or six million pounds and that rules out a lot of clubs.

"If you're talking eight, nine or 10 then who is going to pay that? That is the top five or six in the Premier League."
