Crystal Palace would be interested in taking former star man Wilfried Zaha back to Selhurst Park should be become available, according to Palace co-chairman Steve Parish. 

Zaha, who signed for Manchester United in the summer from the London club, has found first team opportunities hard to come by under David Moyes, and has been linked with a loan move to several Premier League sides. 

But, should the England under-21 international become available, he could be heading back to his former side.

"If he is available, we would definitely be interested," said Parish.

"We don't know yet whether he will be available in January and there is a lot of football to be played between now and then, but if he is, we will certainly be staking a big claim to get him."

Palace have only collected three points from their first seven league games since their return to the Premier League, and will need players of Zaha's ability to boost them in January if they are to climb out of the relegation zone. 

However, Alan Pardew's Newcastle United have been named as the favourites to sign the winger, with Zaha apparently welcoming a temporary move to St. James' Park. 

Zaha, who won the first of his two full England caps in November last year, would seemingly need to leave Old Trafford in January if he is to force his way into Roy Hodgson's World Cup plans.
