Crystal Palace winger Zaha insists Spurs, Chelsea never tempted him

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha says he was never tempted by big club interest this summer.

Zaha insists he had no intention of joining Chelsea or Tottenham during the transfer window.

"There was no real rush for me to move to another team," he told Sky Sports.

"All the speculation, I never said anything, I just kept my head down, playing football and I feel like it's the right thing to do. I'm at home here and I'm playing football regularly, I'm enjoying my football so it was a no brainer.

"Why do I really need to move? That's what I thought about and I thought 'why not stay put?' I'm playing in the Premier League, I'm happy, I'm near my family so there was no real reason to leave."
