Manchester United boss mulls over Zaha exit

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he will consider letting Wilfried Zaha go out on loan in January.

The pacey 20-year-old joined from Crystal Palace this summer, he was Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing at the club, although was loaned back to the Eagles for the rest of the season.

Big things were expected of the 20-year-old and lots of pressure was put on him. However his only games so far this season have been in the Community Shield and for his national side.

Moyes was thoroughly against letting his starlet go out on loan, even though many Premier League clubs chased a loan deal for the youngster.

But now the Old Trafford faithful seem to have changed their mind, and Moyes admits that he may have some thinking to do come January.

Moyes told The Sun: "I've said if I couldn't get him a game I would look at it in January.

"I really thought when he came in he needed to be here for six months to see how we work.

"There is competition in the wide areas with Nani, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj and even Shinji Kagawa - that makes it one of the areas where we are strong.

"It's not because Wilf has not done enough, it's because we have got big, big competition and there are a lot of players to give some playing time to.

"Unfortunately we've not been able to do that with Wilf. If I can't do a lot for him by January then I will look at it.

"We've not had the right opportunity to introduce him as much as we'd like but he's very much in my plans."
