Hodgson talked about Zaha and the possibility of him leaving the club in January during his post-match press conference after the Burnley game at Turf Moor on Saturday evening.
According to him, Ivorian international Zaha is not for sale as he’s hopeful that the player will score the goals that will see them climb up the Premier League table.
Wilfried Zaha expressed his desire to leave Crystal Palace in the summer but he was unable to engineer a transfer out of the club amidst the bids from fellow English top-flight teams Arsenal and Everton.

Arsenal and Everton both submitted several bids for the player but they didn’t get to the £80m asking price slapped on him by the Eagles.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has already confirmed that the club will sell Zaha in the January transfer window if they can get a premium transfer fee for him though Roy Hodgson has other ideas.
The Crystal Palace manager is ready to do battle for Zaha to stay at Selhurst Park.
Zaha scored one of the goals as Crystal Palace recorded a 2-0 win at the home of Burnley.
