Jonny Williams has told Crystal Palace not to sell star man Wilfried Zaha.

Newspaper speculation suggests that Zaha could be leaving Palace, with Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund among the clubs interested in acquiring the speedy winger.

Williams has known Zaha for years, having grown up with him in the Eagles Academy, and says it's crucial Palace can keep hold of their talisman as he couldn't be replaced.

"For me, he's irreplaceable and it's vital he stays at Palace," he told Palace TV. "He's been vital to the way we've played over the last few years.

"Even in the play-off season what he did to get us up, what he did in the play-off games and throughout that year was exceptional.

"To come back and show the same form, if not better, he's just kicked on. He's a super star now and he's still the same person and that's great and it's great for Palace and it's great to back playing alongside him."

Wales international Williams played 13 times on loan at Sunderland last term and is now eyeing a first-team role at Palace next season after getting run-outs over the summer.

"It's always nice to be back in a Palace shirt, back in pre-season," added the 24-year-old. "On a personal note, I'm fit, playing well in training and games and it's up to the manager and staff to keep giving me opportunities and I'll stay fit and give myself the best chance."
