Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha will not be joining Newcastle United on loan in January, Alan Pardew has confirmed.

It was reported on Thursday that 10 clubs are interested in taking the 21-year-old on loan in the new year. However, Pardew has revealed that Newcastle are not keen on signing any players on a temporary basis, unless there is a possibility of a permanent deal being completed at the end of the loan agreement.

Zaha has failed to cement a first-team place at Old Trafford since completing his £15m move from Crystal Palace in January, but Pardew believes the England international will soon be handed a chance by United boss David Moyes.

“Zaha is a player I know very well from his time at Palace," Pardew was quoted as saying by The Sun. “He made the big move to Man United and his career has maybe stalled a little bit.

“That’s something players have to go through, but I know he’s doing well in the background and maybe he will get an opportunity there.”

It's believed that the Red Devils would be keen to see Zaha join a club who are capable of taking points off their title rivals - and Newcastle fall into this category.

The Ivory Coast-born winger has also been linked with the likes of Everton, Stoke City and Aston Villa.
