CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Parish says the club will do everything they can to gain promotion to the Premier League and that selling their best players is not going to help achieve that.
Speculation surrounding Wilfried Zaha refuses to go away, but Parish, like manager Ian Holloway, wants everyone to concentrate on other matters on the pitch.
"We just want to put a lid on it now," he told Advertiser Sport.
"All I care about is getting promoted. In the end, that's all I care about.
"Wilfried is on a four-and-a-half year contract and every real offer that comes in, we look at it in the context of what's best for our chances of getting promoted.
"Every decision we make, will it help us get promoted? Yes or no? If it's a yes, we'll do it, but if it's a no, we're not going to do it, so that's the test of everything at the moment.
"We want stability and all of our best players available and try to get promoted – that's our goal.
"Everybody else will have to fit in around that."
And with reports suggesting clubs will look to buy the winger before offering to loan him back to Palace isn't something Parish is keen on either.
"It's an idea that doesn't strike me with joy," he said.
"I'm not sure what you would get out of a player."
