Manchester United are willing to consider sending Wilfried Zaha out on loan in January, but will not sell the winger - despite interest from Everton.
The Daily Mirror reports Everton are keen to take the United youngster on a permanent basis. But David Moyes is not ready to offload Zaha after just five months.
The 20-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in the summer after the club agreed a fee last January, but he's struggled to see any playing time at all this season.
Moyes is open to the idea of sending him on loan to a Premier League club when the January transfer window reopens - but he will not sell him despite Everton's interest.
Newcastle reportedly lead the race to take him on loan, with West Brom and Stoke also keen to offer him first-team football for the reminder of the campaign.
A loan switch suits all parties, with Moyes still confident Zaha will turn out to be a world-class winger at Old Trafford.
The feeling is he just needs time to adapt to Premier League football, and a loan spell at a club like Newcastle is thought to appeal to Moyes.
The report also claims Zaha's former boss at Crystal Palace, Dougie Freedman, has asked about taking him to Bolton Wanderers on loan before the January window - but United want more time before they make a decision.
