Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has said that Wilfried Zaha has given "no indication" that he wants to leave the club.
The Ivorian forward, who was a key figure for the Eagles last term, was reported to have told his teammates that he wants to move to Chelsea.
Speaking to talkSPORT, however, Hodgson rubbished the claims by saying that Zaha remains an important part of his squad.
"No, nothing at all on [the rumours]. I don't read those stories to be perfectly honest, they circulate all the time," the manager said. "I spoke to Wilf yesterday and he certainly gave me no indication it was true about wanting to quit the club.
"In fact, we were talking about how good the new signings were and how they would help us. I'm afraid I prefer to stay in that world where I speak to the players and watch them train rather than follow what is happening in the mass media.
"The thing with Wilf is very simple. He's very much an integral part of our plans. He's very much an integral part of Crystal Palace Football Club. Everyone likes him. Everyone admires him, he knows that and I think he likes and respects the club as well."
Zaha scored nine goals and assisted three others in 29 top-flight appearances last term.
