Cape Town - Wilfried Zaha has quashed the prospect of a move to Tottenham after penning a new five-year contract at Crystal Palace.

Zaha’s impressive performances last season were rumoured to have caught the eye of Premier League runners-up Spurs, while Manchester City and Arsenal were linked with the 24-year-old.

However, Zaha - who returned to boyhood club Palace from Manchester United in 2015 - will stay at Selhurst Park after agreeing a new deal mooted to be in excess of £100 000 a week.

“Palace is in my heart and I don’t think the story is over,” said Zaha.

“I spoke with Steve [Parish] and I think I still have more to give this club. The supporters have been amazing and I want us to do more than just stay in the league next year.

“I would like to thank the chairman for being a big part of my journey and his fellow owners for backing me and rewarding my progression. Let’s do this!”

Palace chairman Steve Parish added: “He is our talisman and someone that week in, week out gives everything for the Red and Blue. I’m delighted he has committed his future to us and look forward to climbing up the table with him next year.”

Meanwhile Sam Allardyce has stepped down as Crystal Palace manager after just five months at the helm of the Premier League club for family reasons.
