Crystal Palace boss Hodgson: Bayern Munich want Zaha? I'll call Rummenigge

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson says he can quickly clear up whether Bayern Munich are serious about Wilfried Zaha.

Bayern have been linked with a bid for the Palace star this month.

And Hodgson declared: "Zaha to Bayern on loan? Was it serious? Where did you get it from? Is Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Bayern CEO) still there?

"I'll call him about it. He's an old friend.

"I'll ask him: 'Is it true that you really put a loan offer on our best player so that we finish the season without our best player? Is that true?'

"If he says 'yes', I will answer your question next time. But I don't think he'll say that."
