Manchester United winger to seek January loan exit

Published Add your comment

Wilfried Zaha is seeking to leave Manchester United on loan after failing to break into the first team at Old Trafford.

Zaha arrived at Manchester United from Crystal Palace over the summer in a deal worth £12 million, but is yet to play a Premier League minute for his new club.

According to the Telegraph up to five clubs are interested in taking Zaha on loan - although Crystal Palace are not believed to be amongst them.

Newcastle, West Ham and Fulham are amongst his Premier League suitors, while a temporary switch to Championship club Bolton has been ruled out.

Zaha's only game time for Manchester United since his move from Selhurst Park has come in the Community Shield - the closest he has come to playing in the Premier League for the Red Devils has been when he was an unused sub in the games against Palace and Swansea.

In the past Manchester United boss David Moyes has hinted that Zaha, who was signed by his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, isn't ready for first team action just yet.

“Wilf has not appeared,” Moyes said. “We have not felt we have had the opportunity.

“I want Wilf to get used to what happens here. The competition is hard. It is just impossible to get all these players a game at the one time. You can only ever play eleven.

"But it is important Wilf gets to see the level of the training here, the level of the players and the quality they have got. He is getting better, which we are pleased about.”

According to the Telegraph, Moyes' has reservations about Zaha, who is currently with the England U21 squad, and his tendency to gift possession away in dangerous areas.

Zaha could feature in cup competitions for Manchester United before his loan exit, and could play in the Capital One Cup clash against Norwich in two weeks' time.
