Three Premier League clubs chasing Manchester United starlet

Manchester United boss David Moyes will run their rule over Wilfried Zaha during the club's preseason tour - amid interest from three Premier League teams regarding a loan move.

The 20-year-old winger joins up with his United teammates for the first time this month following his £15m move from Crystal Palace.

And according to the Daily Mail, Fulham, along with West Ham and former-club Palace, are keen to bring him in on a temporary basis if United decide he's not in their immediate first-team plans.

Zaha helped Palace to promotion via the playoffs last season, and his boyhood club are eager to secure his services for another season to help with their survival bid.

But the attacker wants to prove himself at Old Trafford, and is not believed to favour a loan switch.

Instead, he's keen to make an impression on the United first-team, and work his way into the starting eleven. With Ashley Young in and out of the team through injury, and Nani linked with a move away from United, Zaha feels there's an opportunity to stake a claim.

Moyes will reportedly monitor his contributions over the course of the pre-season - but Zaha will report to training slightly later than his teammates after playing for England at the recent European under-21 Championships.

The young winger was Sir Alex Ferguson's last signing as United boss, and was bought on recommendation from his son, Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson.
