Ian Holloway: Angry over Zaha talk

With the January transfer window looming, the 20-year-old striker was recently linked with the Gunners.

But when a journalist asked Holloway on Friday about reports of his possible departure from Selhurst Park, Holloway was having none of it.

He said: "I'm fed up talking about Wilf. We have some great players here.

"Why not talk about Andre Moritz or Mile Jedinak or Yannick Bolasie.

"Wilf's our player, he's on a four and half year contract and it would take a lot more than one player to de-rail us.

"We have many good players. It's all because he was called up by England lately."

The Eagles are currently second in the Championship table and Holloway added: "I thought it was unprofessional of Arsenal to mention Zaha.

"I like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He would help our promotion push. And what about Theo Walcott, he's out of contract at the end of this season.

"I bet you wouldn't start the speculation that way around."

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
