Manchester United winger not among Swansea targets

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has rejected the assertion that the club are in pursuit of Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha, branding links to the player as 'wrong'.

Zaha was reported to be under consideration by Michael Laudrup as he bids to reinforce his attacking options before the close of the January transfer window, but there would appear to be no truth in such suggestions.

Speaking to the South Wales Evening Post, Jenkins immediately dismissed the idea that Swansea are contemplating an approach for Zaha, who has hardly featured for Manchester United this season.

The 21-year-old was Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing as Manchester United manager when a deal was agreed 12 months ago but, since completing a full-time move to Old Trafford in the summer, has played only twice in the Premier League.

Zaha would appear set to be loaned by the club during this transfer period and, with Swansea out of the reckoning, Cardiff City are the favourites to secure a short-term deal for the England under-21 international.

Cardiff had been linked with Zaha prior to the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager, and the recruitment of the former Manchester United star will surely only enhance their prospects of signing the player.
