Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we were wondering what on earth has happened to Wilfired Zaha at Manchester United.
Signed by former manager Sir Alex Ferguson nearly twelve months ago, the youngster appears to have been frozen out at Old Trafford by new boss David Moyes.
We’re not going to help spread frivolous rumours here in the tavern so lets assess the possible reasons why he is out of favour and focus on the news from the Mail Online.
The publication note that United will make Zaha available for a loan deal in January as they look to get him more first team Premier League experience in the Premier League.
The England Under-21 international started the Community Shield fixture against Wigan Athletic at Wembley in August but has not been utilised seen since as Moyes looks to use more experience players in his debut season with the club.
Zaha scored for United’s development side during the week but the publication suggests that the winger will look for first team football with an eye on winning a place in Roy Hodgson’s possible World Cup squad.
Understandably his former club Crystal Palace are very keen to see him return to Selhurst Park, but there is also interest from Swansea City, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United who are all keen with the latter sides proving more likelier destinations than the Eagles.
Is Moyes right to freeze out the English youngster and will his development be helped with time away from Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts below.
