Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt says he is going nowhere this month.

The defender has been linked with a move to Everton after falling out of favour at Selhurst Park.

Jeffrey Schlupp has been the preferred first-choice left-back under Roy Hodgson.

But Van Aanholt, who joined Palace in a £12m deal last year, took to Twitter to reassure fans over his future.

He said: “Don’t worry , I’m very happy at Palace, I’m not going anywhere.”

The Eagles are still in relegation trouble despite losing just once in 11 league games.

And Van Aanholt, who has survived the drop with Palace and Sunderland in the past two seasons, will provide much-needed experience.
