Zaha - I'm ready for the Premier League

Wilfried Zaha has admitted he would take the opportunity to move to the Premier League in January.

The winger has been linked with a host of top clubs, namely Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, after impressing for Ian Holloway's promotion-chasing side.

The 20-year-old, who made his England debut as a second-half substitute against Sweden in November, has scored five goals in 24 appearances this season. But he has admitted he is ready to leave Selhurst Park in the upcoming January transfer window.

He told the Mail on Sunday: "I've played more than 100 first-team games and this year is crucial to develop my football career. I want to establish myself in the Premier League and in international football.

"I've played a lot in the Championship so having that new challenge in the Premier League, where everyone wants to be, would be great."

Arsenal and Spurs are interested in signing Zaha, but are likely to bid £7million to begin with, according to the Mail on Sunday. Sir Alex Ferguson is also fan but already has plenty of talented wide players at Old Trafford, so his January activity may depend on the future of Nani.

"To be honest, if I had the chance in January and Palace agreed, it's something I'd want to go for.

"I've done a lot of learning in the Championship. Now I'm ready for the Premier League."
