Wilfried Zaha pens bumper new Crystal Palace contract

Wilfried Zaha has signed a new deal with Crystal Palace to 2023.

Zaha has penned a new five-year contract at Palace worth £130,000 per week, making him the highest-paid player at the club.

It comes after Palace staved off strong interest from both Tottenham and Chelsea, who couldn't stump up the £70million it would have taken to prise him away from Selhurst Park, says the Daily Mail.

But amid the furore surrounding his future, Zaha has repeatedly reaffirmed his commitment to Palace and has been rewarded with a bumper new deal.

Zaha will see his weekly wage rise £20,000 from £110,000 — which was the joint-highest alongside Christian Benteke — making him the highest-paid player outright.
