There is potentially so much more value for him personally and professionally by staying at the club and supporting its continued growth, compared to wandering away to play what could be a handful of European games, with no guarantees about trophies.

I understand the desire to better himself - and I worry that he may not have realised his fullest potential with Palace - but the window of opportunity is rapidly narrowing.

There's a point where it makes more sense to knuckle down with Palace and commit fully, because that's when he plays his best football and looks happiest.

Perhaps selfish and one-eyed as a fan, but that's my view.
He did an interview on a podcast recently where someone put this to him and Wilf didn't seem particularly persuaded to stay here just for the sake of his 'legacy'. From what I've heard from him recently, he seems very very keen to move on.

If anyone offers a decent fee (40m+) then I think we should take it but I can't imagine that they will.
