Ex-Crystal Palace owner Jordan says Zaha should go to Tottenham

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan thinks Wilfried Zaha should go to Tottenham.

The former Palace owner knows Zaha wants to leave his beloved club for a team in European competition.

And Jordan, who spoke with talkSPORT, believes Spurs would be a great move, if they were able to afford the transfer fee Palace wants.

"(Palace and Zaha are in) a slightly difficult position. Zaha made it clear he wanted to go last season and got rewarded with a significant contract to keep him focused on staying," said Jordan.

"It hasn't been a great season for Wilfried Zaha. Palace have a valuation for him I think is based on his talent.

"Some of the output he has given for Palace this season would not necessarily demand the same figure. If you could get £60 million last year, you're going to really struggle to get that now because his form hasn't been what it was.

"He does want to go but I'm not entirely sure there's a queue of clubs that will buy him. I think, as much as it galls me, Tottenham is a place that would do Wilfried well."
