Cape Town - Roy Hodgson says it's a massive compliment that Manchester
City are being linked with Aaron Wan-Bissaka but knows nothing about a
potential deal for the talented full-back.
The 20-year-old defender has impressed for the Eagles this
season, prompting rumours of a January switch.
Wan-Bissaka is a former Palace youth player, who was
promoted to the senior side by former boss Frank De Boer.
Under Hodgson, the England U21 international has continued
to thrive and has been a regular in the Premier League this season.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of facing
Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, Hodgson said: "I've got absolutely no idea
if there's any truth to the subject at all.
"You'd have to ask Pep Guardiola and I very much doubt
whether he'd give you an answer anyway."
He added: "But it's good I suppose that there are
people out there writing stories, who see the quality of Bissaka and appreciate
what he's been doing and linking [him] with another club.
"But as far as we're concerned of course we have him as
our player, he's under contract with us and we have no desire or intention of
selling him so it's certainly not anything which occupies my waking moments or
sleeping moments either for that matter."
He concluded: "I'm happy he's here. I'm happy he's
playing well. I'm happy his skills are being recognised and long may that
