Palace boss plays down move for Manchester United man but tips him for England again

ALAN Pardew says Palace's loan winger Wilfried Zaha "has a lot going for him" and believes he has been given a chance to shine back at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles manager has tipped the 22-year-old to get back into the England squad – but only if he fulfils his potential with the attributes required in the Premier League.

Zaha played a big role in last weekend's 3-2 win at Burnley, impressing out on the right in particular.

And Pardew has played down any suggestion that Palace could make his loan signing a permanent one – yet.

"I'm not sure about that option (of making it permanent this month)," said the boss.

"What I do know is that he's a player that needs to get his career on the move again.

"He's had a decent couple of games, made an impact and he needs to build on that. I think that is where he's at.

"He's a talent that needs to nail down a permanent position here, whether he's on loan or permanent but I've been very pleased with what I've seen so far.

"He certainly has got the ability. I have worked with players who have fantastic technical ability for the Premier League but have only ever played in League One.

"All the attributes, you need to have the power, strength, the mental and technical quality to become a Premier League player.

"Wilfried has got a lot going for him and he has the potential to have an impact on the international stage at some point.

"I think the opportunities at Man United have been limited and that's been a problem. That's been a problem particular at the top four clubs.

"Wilf is one of the lucky ones that he has a platform to play."
