Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan is hopeful that Ivory Coast star Wilfried Zaha will stay with the London club through the European summer.

The Elephants attacker is being linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Arsenal following an excellent season in the red and blue of Palace. His form is key to the club’s hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League.

Jordan believes Zaha has a strong link with Palace after his return to the club following a disappointing spell with Manchester United and expects him to remain at Selhurst Park.

"I think someone is going to have to break Palace's arm off at the wrist to sell him in the summer," Jordan told talkSPORT.

"I think there is every possibility [he could stay]. He has a lot of affinity with the club because they gave him a chance when he came back from Man United.

"But if they're going to have to sell him, you can see Tottenham, but they would have to pay more for him than they're probably willing to.

"I can't see Man City signing Zaha, I can more see Arsenal or Tottenham signing him."
