Tottenham Hotspur’s reported hopes of landing Wilfried Zaha have ended abruptly, with the flying winger signing a new contract with Crystal Palace.

The Ivory Coast international has really developed over the last 12 months, adding end product to his ability to beat players and provide incision in the final third.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with Zaha over the last year and are believed to have had an offer for the former Manchester United attacker rejected last summer.

Spurs are expected to look for attacking reinforcements over the off-season but will need to assess other targets following the latest confirmation from Palace.

The Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their views over missing out on Zaha, with the White Hart Lane faithful seemingly split over the news.

While most are glad that the transfer saga will not be drawn out over the next few months, some are disappointed that the skilful wideman will not be joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side before next season.

Here are the best tweets.
