Zaha set to leave United on loan, with Everton and Newcastle in the frame
Thursday 12 December 2013
Man United midfielder Wilfried Zaha looks set to leave the club on loan in January – and Premier League sides Everton and Newcastle are ready to make a move, according to The Daily Mail.
Zaha moved to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace for around £15m earlier this year, and immediately spent a loan spell back at Selhurst Park. He has struggled to get into the Man United first team, making only a single competitive appearance so far this season.
Despite his absence from the first team, Red Devils boss David Moyes remains a fan of Zaha and is willing to allow the 21-year-old to go out on loan in order to gain more first team experience – enabling the England international the opportunity to fulfill his massive potential.
The Daily Mail also reports that Zaha’s £35k-per-week wages would have to be covered by any side who take the midfielder on loan, but this is unlikely to be seen as a major problem considering other Premier League stars’ reported earnings.
Zaha finally made his United debut against now potential suitors Newcastle, but was unable to help the Reds as they fell to defeat at St. James’ Park.
