Reports: Zaha Goes AWOL On Deadline Day

Amid rumours linking him with a move away from Crystal Palace, Ivorian winger Wilfried Zaha has reportedly gone AWOL on deadline day.

Zaha has been strongly linked with a move to fellow Premier League side Everton, and the Toffees are reportedly close to completing a deal for the former Manchester United winger.

The only stumbling block at the moment is said to be Palace's £80 million (R1.4 billion) valuation for the African star, which Everton appear unwilling to match. 

According to Sky Sports, the Merseyside club saw an offer £70 million (R1.2 billion) plus players rejected on Wednesday, which prompted the Ivorian to hand in a transfer request.

Zaha has now taken matters in to his own hands in order to force through a transfer, and failed to report for the club's training session this morning.

The move comes as a blow to Palace who could now lose their star man and, with the transfer window closing later today, would have little time to replace him.

Should Everton improve their offer, Zaha could become the most expensive African player of all time, breaking the £72 million (R1.3 billion) record recently set by new Arsenal signing Nicolas Pepe.
