Crystal Palace

Dann expects interest in Palace stars

2nd April 2019, 10:27 by Neil Foster

Scott Dann feels Crystal Palace's best players will be targeted but would love the squad to stay together for a bit longer.

The Eagles all but secured their place in the Premier League on Saturday, with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Selhurst Park seeing them move on to 36 points - eight clear of the relegation zone.

Although there are still seven games to go for Roy Hodgson's side, thoughts will inevitably turn to the summer and the possible arrivals and exits from the south London club.

Two players who have been heavily linked with leaving are Ivory Coast star Wilfried Zaha and England Under-21 ace Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who put on yet another superb display at right-back against the Terriers.

It remains to be seen if the duo are snapped up during the off-season and Dann, while hoping they stay, is certain their heads may be turned by bigger clubs.

"When you play at the level they play at week in, week out, you can't help those conversations or rumours coming about," he said.

"They are both top, top players. They are performing at a very high level, so it is never going to go away. Whether in the future they stay or move on, who knows.

"But while they are here, and they are performing the way they are, obviously we would love to keep them for as long as possible."
