Dougie Freedman says he has spoken to Kenny Dalglish and Sir Alex Ferguson about Wilfried Zaha, but has reiterated the Crystal Palace winger is not for sale.

Zaha has been in impressive form for the Eagles this season and was rewarded with a new long-term contract earlier in the campaign.

The 19-year-old's performances have seen him linked with a string of Premier League clubs, with reports last week claiming Newcastle United were ready to open talks.

Liverpool and Manchester United have also been mooted as admirers of Zaha, and Freedman has discussed the player with the clubs' respective managers.

However, with Palace closing in on a place in the Carling Cup final and pushing for the play-offs in the Championship, Freedman has no intention of selling Zaha.

Freedman said in the Daily Mirror: "I've had chit-chats with Kenny Dalglish and Alex Ferguson, but he is not going anywhere."
