Crystal Palace tell Liverpool FC and Man Utd that Wilfried Zaha is not for sale

Liverpool and Manchester United have been told that Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha is not for sale.

Zaha has been linked with a move to Anfield on a number of occasions over the past twelve months, and reports last week had revealed that Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has spoken to Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman to discuss the availability of the 19-year-old, who is valued at around £10million.

Manchester United are also showing interest and Freedman has revealed that he has also spoken with United manager Sir Alex Ferguson about the teenager.

However, the Eagles boss warned: "I've had chit-chats with Kenny Dalglish and Alex Ferguson, but he is not going anywhere."

Zaha only recently committed his future to the Eagles, agreeing a new five-and-a-half-year deal with the club last month.

Freedman has been assured by Palace co-owner Steve Parish that the Ivory Coast-born youngster will not leave the club before the Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Cardiff on January 24th.

Advancing to the Wembley final will likely see Zaha remain at the club for the rest of the season, but despite Freedman's comments, defeat to Cardiff could see Palace cash in on their prize asset, with the recently signed contract set to bump up his asking price.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle have also shown interest.
