Wilfried Zaha
Zaha played an influential part in palace winning promotion to the Premier League

Crystal Palace will renew attempts to sign Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on loan for the 2013/14 season.

After The Eagles confirmed promotion to the top flight via the play-offs manager Ian Holloway appeared to quash suggestions that Zaha, who signed a permanent deal with the Premier League champions in January, could return for a second loan spell at Selhurst Park next term.

But chief executive Phil Alexander insists Palace haven't given up on signing Zaha, confirming the club will make an enquiry as to the England international's availability.

"It's another option, clearly that's up to Manchester United," Alexander told Sky Sports News. "He's their player now. Will we be asking? We'll probably ask in passing but it's really down to them," he explained to Sky Sports News.

"Would we love to see Wilfried back? Of course we would but he's got a career at Manchester United and, after a few training sessions up there, I'm not sure they'll be willing to let him out on loan."

David Moyes is yet to officially begin his tenure as United manager and the Scot is likely to require time to assess his squad before making an informed decision over the future of Zaha, who will be given an extended holiday having played with England's Under-21 side during the European Championship in Israel.

Palace are yet to begin their summer transfer business, but the main priority surrounds finding a replacement for last season's top scorer Glenn Murray, who could miss the rest of the year after picking up a knee injury during the club's play-off semi-final first leg against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Kevin Phillips, the play-off final match-winner against Watford, could be handed a new contract, while defender Danny Gabbidon has already penned a new deal. Alexander says Palace's squad is strong going into their first season in the top flight since 2004/05.

"We're really fortunate - we're coming up with a real good squad," Alexander insisted.

"Most of our squad from last year is signed up, they're obviously used to playing with each other, they've got great team spirit and we will be adding to the squad.

"There's a number of names on the list but we've already got the basis of the squad already there. It's difficult to say in terms of numbers - we have got some key areas.

"We did have an injury to Glenn Murray at the back end of last season and he was our top goalscorer so it's pretty clear that we need a centre-forward and probably two or three more to add to the squad.

"We're in no major rush, we've got some good targets, Ian's done a lot of homework in terms of what players are available and we're now talking to various agents, talking to other clubs and going through that process.

"We've got a budget in mind, it would be daft to give out numbers but we've worked out the budget.

"We've looked at the income streams and we'll manage the club the best we can, going forward without taking any risks."
