Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has ruled out summer moves for hot prospects Wilfried Zaha and Jon Williams reports

Having been heavily linked with Liverpool over the past few days, the teenage duo will not be moving to Anfield at the end of the season according to an official statement from Selhurst Park.

"I have heard absolutely nothing about it," Parish told the Croydon Advertiser. "I don't understand where these stories are coming from.

"Both of those players are under long contracts and are going nowhere."


Zaha has been getting rave reviews for his performances on the Palace wing this season, while under-21 international Williams is yet to make his debut for the first-team.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is said to have personally watched Williams playing for the reserves, and was keen to secure a deal for both promising youngsters.

Although no contact has yet been made, it is believed that Liverpool will continue their pursuit of the talented pair when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Reds Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli, who was appointed by Liverpool to run the rule over Europe’s brightest up-and-coming stars may still look to engineer a double-deal, and will be buoyed by Parish’s comments.

"If Liverpool really are interested perhaps it would be better for them to pick up the phone and give us a call," he concluded.
