Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has hinted that the Eagles are ready to take Wilfried Zaha back to Selhurst Park. Zaha was sold to Manchester United for £15 million in 2013 but his future at Old Trafford is in question as he has failed to shine. In an interview with Sky Sports News Parish insists the 21-year-old winger would be welcome back but stresses the decision is up to Palace boss Tony Pulis - and United.

It's up to the manager, the players we sign. It's not up to me. I'm there to help him get the squad he wants. There's a sentimental value and I loved Wilf as a kid and he did sensational things for us. "I know the fans would like him back and that will play a part, but in the end the manager will decide what we do.


Parish hopes to complete the signing of two players before Saturday's Premier League opener against Arsenal and confirmed the row over player bonuses has been brought to a successful resolution.
