Wilfried Zaha has brushed aside speculation linking him with a  return to Crystal Palace or any other club by insisting he wants to stay at Manchester United.

When asked about speculation regarding his short-term future, he told Manchester United's official website ManUtd.com: "I've grafted to get here so Manchester United is where I want to stay.

"I have moved away from most of my family and friends but it’s progress. Everyone understands that. 

“I wanted to make the move here because it’s what is best for my career."

The United new-boy has been thrown straight into the deep end as he has jetted off to Asia to take part in Manchester United’s pre-season tour.

The winger admitted he was nervous at first but is now starting to settle into the squad.

"I just stayed in my corner of the dressing room really and looked about and tried to get used to everyone," he claimed. 

"Everybody jokes around in the changing room and all that kind of stuff so it was just enjoyable really. I was a bit nervous coming in but everyone is cool so it was nice.  

"I would’ve preferred starting with everyone else so I could make a good impression and put in a good effort so I’m just glad I was here before the tour started."

United play Singha All-Star XI in Bangkok for the first game of pre-season on Saturday, which will be David Moyes’ first game in charge of the Red Devils.
