Solskjaer backs Zaha to focus

Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes loan signing Wilfried Zaha will not be ruffled by speculation linking him with a return to his former club Crystal Palace.

We have had Wilfried coming on (against West Brom), making an impact and - surprise, surprise - Palace want to sign him this week.

I would like to sign him if we can.

Wilf is a good player, but I don't think he is being drawn into this situation where it is suddenly brought up that his former club want to sign him just as he faced his old team. Palace is his past.

Of course it (the situation) is (manufactured), but Wilf is fine.

I have had words with him and he knows the game. I have not heard (Palace manager) Tony Pulis speaking about him. I am not sure if he is Tony's type of player.
