Wilfried Zaha out for the season – Crystal Palace fear he has played his last game for them

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha will miss the rest of the season through a hamstring injury and might have played his last game for the club, according to the Daily Mail.

The Ivory Coast international will miss the final games against Fulham and Nottingham Forest. He picked up the issue during Palace’s weekend fixture against Bournemouth.

Palace defeated the Cherries through a double from prospective England international Eberechi Eze.

However, it was not all good news for Palace as Zaha went down in the 51st minute and he was forced out of the game.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson said the injury was concerning, but they had to wait for the scans. The results have revealed he will miss the rest of the campaign.

Zaha is in the final few weeks of his contract with Palace and can walk away for free this summer.

The 30-year-old has several offers but will take his time to decide on the next step in his career.

Zaha could even continue at Palace as he has built a strong relationship with chairman Steve Parish. He has not ruled at continuing with the club.

Palace have offered him a 200k-a-week deal to stay, but he remains keen on assessing his options.

They are keen to keep him around but will understand if he decides to move on after over 450 appearances across two spells.

Palace already have a ready-made replacement for Zaha in Eze. The 24-year-old has been impressive since Hodgson was appointed.

Eze has netted six goals in his last seven games and has put himself in contention for an England call-up.
