Wilfried Zaha

Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has joined Premier League rivals Crystal palace on a season-long loan deal.

"Crystal Palace are delighted to confirm that winger Wilfried Zaha has re-joined the club on loan from Manchester United," a statement on the official Palace site read.

"The two-cap England international has agreed a deal that will see him spend the entire 2014/15 season at Selhurst Park."

Zaha agreed to join Manchester United in January 2013, but he remained with Palace until the end of the 2012/13 season helping them gain promotion to the Premier League before joining his news club for the start of the 2013/14 season.

Even though it was Sir Alex Ferguson who signed him, he came into the team under new manager David Moyes. The 21-year-old winger failed to settle into his new team and featured just four times for Manchester United last season. And the same holds true under new gaffer Louis van Gaal, who has now allowed the forward to leave the club albeit on a temporary basis.

The England international is delighted at his move back to the club he joined as a 12-year-old. He feels it an easy decision to choose Palace, as he knows that he has the support of the club and the fans, and he admitted that he is just waiting to get on the pitch and start playing.

"I'm just buzzing to be back, to be in and around the lads again," Zaha told Palace's official site.

"There have been rumours for a while, but it was only yesterday that it got sorted out and I was happy it got sorted out ASAP because I just need to get out and play."

"The best place to come back to is Palace where I am loved," the Englishman added.

New Palace manager Neil Warnock, who is beginning his second stint as Palace boss is looking forward to working with winger, and believes that he has the right attitude to succeed.

"I did speak to him last night. He is still developing, Wilfried, and he has got so much talent. When you are a wide player, or a forward, you need to feel loved," Warnock said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"I've heard it said about his attitude, but I've always thought his attitude has been spot on, so I'm looking forward to working with him," the former Leeds United manager added.
