Lots of Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed by The Times that Wilfried Zaha has sacked his agent, Will Salthouse.
The Ivory Coast international made his intentions to leave Selhurst Park clear in the summer, handing in a transfer request amid interest from Arsenal and Everton, although the Eagles managed to keep hold of their talisman.
Now, however, the 26-year-old forward has parted ways with his agent, reportedly due to his failure to seal a move away from Selhurst Park.
Salthouse, who has invested in the same businesses as club chairman Steve Parish, maintains a good relationship with the Palace supremo – The Times reports that Zaha cited that relationship as the reason for his decision to cut ties with the agent.
Exit talk had died down somewhat after Zaha had made three starts and one appearance off the bench in Palace’s first four Premier League games this term, although the Ivorian’s latest decision had sparked life into the discussion once again.
Let’s see how the Palace fans on Twitter reacted to the news…

I’m fed up with Zaha now, all he does is moan & winge now. Sooner he’s gone the better

Wow. Big move from Wilf.
Setting things up for a deal to be arranged in January imo. The dream would be to sort out a move in January but keep him till the end of the season ??
Can’t get away from this #Zaha talk can we?! ? #CPFC

He’s surely keen to engineer a move away, but the best way to make sure he gets it is to perform on the pitch, rather than employ a new agent. Make his performances support the fee we’re demanding

I am actually getting sick of the Zaha saga. He used to be so much more devoted to Palace but he clearly doesn’t want to be here anymore. I wish we had sold him in the last transfer window now, I am probably alone in that but this is just making me not like him anymore. #CPFC

I don’t think I’ll ever dislike him but his attitude does suck now. You can see in his performances he’s not really up for it
