Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish admits he would be interested in bringing Wilfried Zaha back to the club in the summer should the Eagles avoid relegation.
Zaha was instrumental in Palace's promotion last season and his performances secured him a big-money move to Manchester United, but he had very little opportunity to impress under David Moyes and has struggled to make any sort of impact on loan at Cardiff. If Tony Pulis is able to keep the Eagles in the Premier League then the player may well be interested in a return next season, even if it was another loan move. Apr 1 - 4:32 AM

In the highly anticipated South Wales derby, Cardiff City played Swansea tough in the first half but eventually fell apart defensively in the second, as the Swans would then cruise to a 3-0 win.

Cardiff had a chance to take advantage of a floundering Swansea side, and would have matched them on points in the table with a win today, but were overwhelmed in the second half by the Swans attack while not being able to counter effectively. Wilfried Zaha looked lively when on the ball, making his first start for the Bluebirds, but also seemed to disappear for long stretches of time. Craig Bellamy came closest to scoring with a screamer off the crossbar which would have made it 1-1 at the time, but nothing much more beyond that today.

Wilfried Zaha has joined Cardiff on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season, the Bluebirds manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has announced.

This is a great signing for Cardiff, who snap up Zaha until the end of the season. The highly rated winger has barely featured for Manchester United, but he remains one of England's brightest talents and could be a key player as the Welsh side look to get out of the relegation zone. Managaer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer summed the player up nicely, saying "he has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will give us that extra change of tempo in the final third, where we really need it. He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic.". We'll be monitoring Zaha's early performances as the young man could prove a handy fantasy option.

Wilfried Zaha is gearing up for a loan move to Cardiff City sometime soon, but head coach David Moyes put all talks on hold until they can assess the extent Nani's hamstring injury.

The 21-year old winger was purchased by then-boss Alex Ferguson from Crystal Palace for £15 million in the January transfer window last season, but eventually remained with the club on loan to finish out the year. Zaha has made just two Premier League appearances under head coach David Moyes which has squashed any chance at him joining up with the England national team for the World Cup. With that said, Zaha now wants to go out on loan again in hopes of getting more first team reps with the Red Devils down the road. The latest reports claim Cardiff City are in the best position to snatch him up after Moyes hinted that he would not be returning to Palace.

Manager David Moyes will consider all offers sent in for England international Wilfried Zaha. While nothing has been received as of yet, Newcastle and Everton look like the front-runners to land the speedy winger come January.

Zaha, a 21-year old Ivory Coast native, has barely seen any action since signing a five-and-a-half-year, £10 million contract (£15m with performance-related bonuses) for Manchester United back in January. Moyes noted that while they are open to offers, nothing has come about as of yet. "I did say to Wilf if I didn't feel he was getting enough games, I would consider it. Obviously if we've got injuries or other reasons, I wouldn't take it on board. The truth is we haven't had anybody phoning up and wanting to do that at the moment. While it's like that, I am fine." Zaha is currently a non-factor in fantasy, logging just 30 minutes total through 16 premier league games in 2013, but a move to another big club in January could turn him into an option worth monitoring. Reports suggest Newcastle and Everton are at the front of the line.

Aston Villa are interested in loaning Wilfried Zaha for the remainder of the season.

Zaha signed with Manchester United last January but was loaned to Crystal Palace until the summer. He has been with United since but hasn't featured in a single Premier League game this season. A loan would probably benefit all sides and I wouldn't be surprised to see Zaha loaned out, even if it's not to Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace have been quick to distance themselves from speculation that Wilfried Zaha will return to Selhurst Park on loan in January.

Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing for Manchester United but David Moyes doesn't appear to believe the young winger is ready for Premier League football just yet, at least not at Old Trafford. Palace boss Ian Holloway has denied any move for Zaha, but he must be tempted to enquire with current wing options Jason Puncheon, Jerome Thomas, Jimmy Kebe and Yannick Bolasie yet to show the required quality to help get the Eagles out of the relegation zone.

Wilfried Zaha wrapped up a successful first pre-season with Manchester United on Tuesday with an assist on United's loan goal.

With Nani, Ashley Young, and Antonio Valencia all more experienced it will be a challenge for Zaha to break into the starting eleven but he has done nothing to hurt his chances during the pre-season. The former Crystal Palace man has consistently been one of United's more dangerous players which bodes well for him getting playing time if Nani leaves (or can't stay healthy) and Valencia continues his struggles of last season. Zaha will be a great fantasy bargain if he does get regular playing time.

Wilfried Zaha has been impressive in Manchester United's pre-season matches thus far and he added to that with his first goal today against Cerezo Osaka.

To say that United's wingers were a disappointment last season would be an understatement. Between Ashley Young, Nani, Antonio Valencia and Ryan Giggs production plummeted dramatically due to aging, injury, fall outs with the manager and unexplained drops in effectiveness. Despite the perceived numbers in front of him it isn't out of the question that Zaha could make an impact this season. His pre-season performances certainly aren't hurting his cause any.

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway claims he will not attempt to re-sign Wilfried Zaha on loan.

It has been suggested across the media that Palace might ask Manchester United for a loan deal for Zaha to assist them in their first season back in the Premier League, but Holloway denies the rumours. "I don't think it's fair to the boy. He's got to have a go at United" said the ex-Blackpool manager, so it appears Palace will be looking elsewhere to fill the creative void left by Zaha.

Crystal Palace, Fulham and West Ham are all waiting to find out whether new Manchester United manager David Moyes is ready to send Wilfried Zaha out on loan.

The Daily Mirror claim all three clubs have submitted bids to offer the 20-year-old wonderkid regular first-team football next season, but Moyes may want to keep the young winger after Nani, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia's less than stellar performances last season. If Zaha did become available it would make sense for him to spend another season back at Palace where he's familiar with the players, manager and adored by the fans.
