Wilfried Zaha has gone and pledged his long-term future to Crystal Palace by signing a big, fat new contract.
The Eagles’ newly-crowned Player of the Year has signed on for five more years at Selhurst Park, thus tying him to the club until 2022.

After announcing the news, Zaha told the club’s official website:
Palace is in my heart and I don’t think the story is over. I spoke with (chairman) 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 Premier 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!
That’s a summer’s worth of ‘Zaha to Tottenham’ tittle-tattle nipped in the bud, so to the Palace board we humbly say: Thank you.
