Crystal Palace becomes first PL club to work with GambleAware

According to the Sun (15 April, page 61), Crystal Palace are on the lookout for a right-back and could make a move for the 28-year-old St Etienne defender in this summer's transfer window.

Under the initiative, which will take place over the final three games of the Premier League season, the club and the charity will produce advertisements and promotional materials intending to raise awareness of the risks of gambling.

Now it's all about building for next season as Pep Guardiola looks to add the elusive Champions League to City's trophy cabinet.

The 25-year-old scored twice during the Eagles' 3-2 win against fellow strugglers Brighton, while team-mate Luka Milivojevic (No 5, up one place) nearly netted his 11th goal of the season before Zaha tapped it over the line.

"As a Premier League club, we recognise our responsibility of helping promote safe and responsible gambling", said Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish.

News of the partnership came ahead of Crystal Palace's narrow 3-2 win over rivals Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, taking the Eagles six points clear of the relegation places.

Zaha, 25, is valued at around £50million and has previously been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium, with Pep Guardiola thought to be a fan of the speedy Ivory Coast global.

Since switching global allegiances from England to Ivory Coast, Zaha has become an important player for his country, gaining experience that has perhaps helped him at club level.
