Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has admitted that the club needs to move forward if they want to keep star player Wilfried Zaha.

As reported on the Evening Standard, many clubs have registered their interest in signing Zaha this summer.

The Ivory Coast international has been influential for Palace again this season and Parish knows that if the club does not increase their ambitions, then the forward could leave.

He said:

I could lay out probably a thousand articles from the last seven years about where Wilf is going to go and when he is going to go. Wilf is focused on between now and the end of the season. 

Clubs have to match the ambitions of the players. We have to move this club forward. It isn’t just supporters that get excited by things improving, it is the people within the club, the staff, the players obviously included.

Palace have once again fought against relegation this season and their victory against Newcastle last weekend seems to have assured their Premier League status for another year.
