Ex Man United star set to make a shock move to Chelsea

Crystal Palace's Ivorian striker Wilfried Zaha celebrates after scoring the equalising goal during the English Premier League football match between Stoke City and Crystal Palace at the

The Ivorian International helped Palace to avoid the drop after a disastrous start to the campaign, scoring nine goals and providing three assists for Roy Hodgson's side in the process.

A former Manchester United attacker reportedly has his heart set on joining Chelsea in this transfer window.

This is despite a report from The Independent, who yesterday claimed that Zaha would not leave the club during this window. "I don't read those stories to be perfectly honest, they circulate all the time", the manager said.

"I'm afraid I prefer to stay in that world where I speak to the players and watch them train rather than follow what is happening in the mass media", he added. The club want me here, the fans want me here, I want to be here, so for me there is nothing to it [speculation linking him with a return to Newcastle].

Long-term Newcastle target Andros Townsend spoke exclusively to Sky Sports about his future, and insisted that he plans to stay with Crystal Palace for many years to come.

The Crystal Palace winger has been heavily linked with a move away from Selhurst Park for a number of months after he seemingly single handedly ensured the Eagles' Premier League safety last term.

A switch to Everton fell through earlier in the summer when Zaha decided he wanted to remain in London.

Chelsea have, so far, been unwilling to spend more than £30m plus players on loan.

"The last two seasons, in particular, have shown his maturity, and his end product has got better".

"I do think the fee would have to be much bigger than what Chelsea are talking about".
