Manchester United consider starlet loan

Try and secure Wilfried Zaha on loan

Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted he is considering sending Wilfried Zaha out on loan in January, according to Sky Sports.

The former Crystal Palace man only joined United on a permanent deal in the summer having signed for the club last January, but is yet to make a Premier League start under Moyes.

It is a situation that has raised a few eyebrows, considering Zaha’s superb form last season which culminated in winning the playoffs with Crystal Palace and earning a call up to the senior England set up.

But he has struggled to win a place in the wide positions, with Nani, Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj all ahead in the pecking order.

Clubs are thought to be queuing up to take the 20-year-old on loan, and Moyes admits it is a situation he will address when the transfer window opens in January.

“I’ve said if I couldn’t get him a game I would look at it in January,” Moyes said.

“I really thought when he came in he needed to be here for six months to see how we work.

“There is competition in the wide areas with Nani, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj and even Shinji Kagawa – that makes it one of the areas where we are strong.

“It’s not because Wilf has not done enough, it’s because we have got big, big competition and there are a lot of players to give some playing time to.

“Unfortunately we’ve not been able to do that with Wilf. If I can’t do a lot for him by January then I will look at it.

“We’ve not had the right opportunity to introduce him as much as we’d like but he’s very much in my plans.”
