Warnock, celebrating his 100th League game as Palace boss, admitted: "I asked him to win the game for us. It's the first time he's done it this season.
"People look at Victor and have doubts about his temperament, but I think he'll blossom the higher he goes.
"The first club to gamble on him will have a jewel on their hands. If anything he'll find the Premier League easier than the Championship because he'll get more space with top-class players. Here they close you down.
"I'm sure there will be interest for him in the transfer window. There were one or two near the deadline this summer, but we're not just letting him go anywhere."
