David Moyes has denied having a bust-up with Wilfried Zaha over denying the former Crystal Palace man a loan move in the January transfer window.

A report on Friday claimed Sir Alex Ferguson's successor had a furious row with the last signing made by Old Trafford club's legendary manager over a temporary move to try and get some playing time.

Moyes flatly denied any such argument took place, though admitted he had told Zaha he couldn't go out on loan at the moment - expressing surprise that the opposite was being touted when the Premier League champions had fitness issues on the flanks.

"I had a 30-second chat on the training pitch today and we were talking away. So there was nothing like that," he told reporters.

"I have told him that if I can't get him the games I will put him out on loan.

"But he can't go out while we have Ashley and Nani injured and I would be surprised if anyone thought that was a possibility."

Zaha was signed by Ferguson last January in a £15million deal and loaned back for the remainder of the season to Palace, which ended with them gaining promotion to the Premier League through the Championship playoffs.

However, Moyes clearly doesn't believe the 21-year-old is ready for a major role in the Manchester United first team, having only given him two appearances in the league this season.

Reports suggested Cardiff City were keen on taking the England Under-21 star for the remainder of the season.
