Crystal Palace fans were fuming when Roy Hodgson called an end to their transfer business yesterday.
Sky Sports News reporter Michael Bridge revealed the news yesterday afternoon after having a conversation with Palace manager Roy Hodgson.
Roy Hodgson tells me no more signings at Palace but Zaha is STAYING. Interview next on @SkySportsNews

The club signed Jordan Ayew after a season on loan at the club last year, Stephen Henderson as a third-choice goalkeeper as well as James McCarthy and Victor Camarasa for more depth in midfield.
While Wilfried Zaha stayed, Aaron Wan-Bissaka joined Manchester United for a reported £50m (The Guardian) in late June, leaving Palace with over five weeks to find a replacement. However, they have failed to do so, which means Joel Ward and Martin Kelly will be the senior options next season in that position.
The Palace fans below were clearly livid, if the responses that follow are anything to go by.
Here are some of the responses below…

What a joke @CEO4TAG . With all due respect, some good business has been done this window but it’s inexcusable to not address RB and Striker and then raise ticket prices this year!! If you want to fill seats spend more than £5 million in a summer window. Disgraceful ownership
