Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has told reporters at a press conference today of his belief that Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha have the ability to represent a 'big club'.
Bolasie and Zaha have been two of Palace's standout performers since Pardew took charge, and the Eagles boss has high hopes for the pair in the future.
He says that they are clearly capable of going on to bigger and better things, but he wants to keep the duo at Selhurst Park for the time being.

Zaha is set to stay at Palace having only recently re-joined the club from Manchester United, but Pardew faces a bigger fight to keep Bolasie.
The winger has already been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the Daily Mirror, so the London outfit may have to fend off interest in him over the coming months.
Palace will be determined to keep hold of Bolasie, though, as they seem to be making big strides forward as a football club.
The Eagles have progressed rapidly under Pardew and will want to ensure that all of their key players stick around, as they look to claim a place in the top-half of the Premier League next season.
