Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has been told to remain patient by Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman, who has told the 20 year-old to remain patient at Old Trafford.
Freedman was in charge of Crystal Palace at the start of last season, where he worked with Zaha before they both departed Selhurst Park.
And according to the Manchester Evening News, the Scottish boss has categorically denied that the two will be reunited at the Reebok.
"People gossip and things get out, but they are putting two and two together because I had him at Crystal Palace," said Freedman.
"There has been no contact between me and David Moyes on Zaha and no contact between me and the chairman on bringing Zaha here."
Zaha was signed by United in January for £15m and was sent back out to Palace on loan for the rest of the season, where he guided the Eagles to promotion via the playoffs.
The under-21 international was linked with a loan deal back to Palace for their return to the Premier League however he has remained at Old Trafford.
Freedman added: "Even under the top man, Sir Alex Ferguson, he would have to wait in exactly the same way.
"Most players when they first go there - Ronaldo, Beckham - they have got to learn their trade. And Wilfried is doing that."
Moyes has already introduced 18 year-old Adnan Januzaj to the first team, and has become a huge sensation, scoring twice in United's 2-1 win over Sunderland.
The Bolton boss thinks it's just a matter of time before the same opportunity comes around for Zaha. "United and David Moyes have got a reputation of getting youngsters into the team. Hasn't he already brought in Januzaj?" said Freedman.
"I am sure Zaha will be in the team when he feels it is the right time for him to play. He has talent and I'm sure that will come through."
