Tottenham Hotspur have increased their bid to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.

The Eagles' chairman Steve Parish brushed aside Spurs' initial £12m advance last week, calling the bid "ridiculous".

However, Spurs have increased their transfer coffers with the sale of Nacer Chadli to West Brom for £13m.

Now they have upped their bid to £18m, and the transfer window closes at 11pm on Wednesday. 

Benteke: I’m trying to convince Wilfried Zaha to stay at Crystal Palace

Zaha was a second half subsitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at Selhurst Park.

Scott Dann bagged the Eagles equaliser after Joshua King had given the Cherries a 1-0 half-time lead.

Palace are next in action on September 10 when they go to Middlesbrough.
