Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he wants to sign Manchester United outcast Wilfried Zaha on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Former Crystal Palace winger Zaha has failed to make a major impact at Manchester United since joining the Premier League champions for £15million in the summer.

Zaha featured in just three games for Manchester United before being shipped out on loan to Cardiff City for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old has impressed in spells at the Bluebirds, which has led Solskjaer into revealing his desire to sign the England Under-21 starlet.

Speaking in the build up to his side's match against Crystal Palace, Solskjaer said on Zaha: "We have had Wilfried coming on [against West Brom last Saturday], making an impact and - surprise, surprise - Palace want to sign him this week.

"I would like to sign him if we can.

"Wilf is a good player, but I don't think he is being drawn into this situation where it is suddenly brought up that his former club want to sign him just as he faced his old team. Palace is his past.

"Of course it [the situation] is [manufactured], but Wilf is fine.

"I have had words with him and he knows the game. I have not heard [Palace manager] Tony Pulis speaking about him. I am not sure if he is Tony's type of player."

Moyes is expected to give Zaha a second chance in the summer before deciding whether to either keep the youngster at Old Trafford, loan him out or even sell the former Eagles star to a potential suitor.

Zaha is expected to feature against the side he helped seal promotion to the top-flight of English football last season on Saturday.
