Newcastle United appear to be leading the race for Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha, according to Metro.

The Magpies have joined Crystal Palace and West Ham in the pursuit of the 21-year-old, who looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer.

The youngster has struggled to force his way in to the Red Devil’s first-team since signing for the club from Palace in 2013.

And despite trying to impress new boss Louis Van Gaal in pre-season, it is believed United are now ready to listen to offers for the England U21 star.

Championship side Nottingham Forest are also thought to be interested in a loan move, although Zaha is eager to stay in the Premier League.

Newcastle are expected to table a bid worth around £7m this week for the 21-year-old, with Alan Pardew desperate to strengthen his side ahead of their season opener away to Manchester City on Sunday.
