Palace boss Holloway hints sale close for Man Utd target Zaha

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway hopes to call on Wilfried Zaha for the remainder of the season.

England international Zaha, 20, is wanted by Manchester United and although their initial £12million valuation of the winger is lower than Palace's, they have been given enough encouragement to return to the negotiating table.

Speaking on the Footballer's Football Show on Sky Sports 1 on Thursday night, Holloway discussed Zaha's future at length and confirmed that he wants him to be around to aid Palace's Championship promotion push.

Sky Sports presenter David Jones asked Holloway: "So what's the plan for him (Zaha) then? You get a big fee for him and get him back (on loan)?"

Holloway smiled, took a sip of water and replied: "You didn't have to be a genius to work that one out did you?"

The ex-Blackpool boss also confirmed that Palace chairman Steve Parish had spoken to "one or two clubs" regarding the Ivory Coast-born winger's future.
