Hodgson says Crystal Palace need Eze more than Manchester United and Manchester City
Crystal Palace came from behind to register a 3-2 win against Aston Villa in their antepenultimate match of the season on Sunday, with Nigerian Federation target Eberechi Eze impressing for the Eagles.

The England U21 international caused problems for the Aston Villa defence throughout the game and set up Wilfried Zaha for the goal to make it 2-2.

Eze was also involved in the build-up to Palace's winning goal when his bouncing shot was turned in by Tyrick Mitchell in the 84th minute.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has admitted that he was delighted with the performance of Eze and Zaha and is aware that top Premier League teams have their eyes on the attack-minded duo in the summer transfer window.

"They [Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze] are quality players," Hodgson said on BBC Match of the Day.

"They are players that could improve quite a few Premier League teams. We need them more than a Manchester City or Manchester United would need them......"

Eze, who has a contract with Palace until 2025, has directly participated in ten goals in his first season in the Premier League.
