Wilfried Zaha, who has been linked with Liverpool and Newcastle, as well as Barcelona, has signed a new long-term deal with Crystal Palace.

The 19-year-old has been in superb form already this season and a number of clubs were believed to be monitoring his progress.

Zaha was first on Liverpool's radar earlier this year and during the Spring it was thought that a summer bid could be tabled by the Merseysiders, and although that didn't happen, the Reds were thought to be considering making a bid next year.

Newcastle were also keen, while according to a report last month in the Daily Mirror, both Spanish champions Barca and Germany giants Bayern Munich were keen on the teenager.

But Palace on Monday announced that the youngster has agreed a new five-and-a-half-year deal with the club.

"I am delighted that Wilfried has extended his contract with the club," Palace manager Dougie Freedman told the club's official website.

"A lot of hard work has seen him develop extremely well over the last year and I look forward to seeing him progress even further in a Crystal Palace shirt."

Arsenal and Manchester City had also shown interest in the Ivory Coast-born youngster, who has already represented England at Under-19 level.
