Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha draws a line under transfer heartache by getting new ‘on top of the world’ tattoo


WILFRIED ZAHA’S new tattoo proves that he is still on top of the world despite his transfer heartache.

The 26-year-old made it clear that he wanted to leave Crystal Palace this summer when he handed in his transfer request.

He was heavily linked to Everton, while Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United were also linked.

But Zaha was left disheartened as Palace failed to agree a deal with the Toffees before the transfer window closed.

Nonetheless, his latest tattoo is permanent proof that he is happy to put his transfer woes behind.

He has had an image of an individual kicking a ball while sitting on top of the world inked on the back of his right leg.

Zaha shared the image with his 853,000 followers on Instagram – who bombarded him with support.

But one cheeky fan commented: “You’ll be on top of the world at Everton lad.”

While another added: “Should get an Everton one on the other leg.”

Palace boss Roy Hodgson was concerned that his fans could turn against the striker after he admitted his desire to leave.

But the supporters welcomed him back with open arms on Saturday during the 0-0 draw with Everton.

He received a standing ovation at Selhurst Park when he was introduced from the subs bench in the 65th minute.
