The Ivory Coast international has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League rivals Tottenham and Chelsea this summer, but Palace did well to keep hold of their star player.
Well in. Best business this summer.

Zaha was superb last season for Palace, scoring nine goals and providing three assists in the Premier League. He helped the club stay well clear of the relegation zone despite losing their seven opening games in the league.
He has started the 2018-19 campaign on a positive note and scored on the opening day with Crystal Palace winning 2-0 against Fulham last week.
