Manchester United have rejected an offer from Nottingham Forest to take Wilfried Zaha on loan, according to the Sunday People.

The former Crystal Palace winger has not played a single minute of competitive action since completing his £15million move to Old Trafford from the Eagles – despite impressing during United’s pre-season tour.

Red Devils boss David Moyes told Zaha on Friday he must wait for his chance to make his competitive debut for the Premier League champions.

Championship side Forest made a move for Zaha in hope that he would be able to boost their promotion hopes - in a similar fashion to what he did for Crystal Palace last season.

However Billy Davies' loan bid for the winger has been rebuffed by Moyes, as he wants Zaha to experience training with United’s top stars.

Zaha scored eight goals for Palace last season and won the penalty that sealed his former side a spot in the Premier League.
