Wilfried Zaha is desperate to gain regular first team action and will consider a loan move away from Manchester United in order to get his fledging career back on track.

The 20 year old was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in January but was immediately loaned back to Crystal Palace as he helped Ian Holloway's side gain promotion back to the Premier League through the play-offs.

New Manchester United boss David Moyes did hand Zaha an opportunity to impress in the Community Shield victory over Wigan but he has not made a single appearance in any other competition this season.

Despite Nani, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young all struggling to find their best form this season, Moyes has refused to hand Zaha a chance and has instead looked to 18 year old midfielder Adnan Januzaj to make an impact in midfield.

The Telegraph reports that due to a lack of first team opportunities Zaha will seek to leave Old Trafford on a short term loan, with some five Premier League clubs said to be interested in securing the services of the talented winger.

However, it seems that Crystal Palace are not one of the those clubs with manager Ian Holloway making it clear that he did not expect United to let him leave, whilst also suggesting he had plenty of options on the wing in his squad.

"David Moyes has his own issues at Manchester United, so if we were to go shouting about wanting him back on loan, I don't think we will ever get him back," Holloway told the South London Press.

"Besides, we have options [on the wings] - Jason Puncheon can play either side and in the pocket as well as in central midfield. Yannick Bolasie is coming back and will do well. It is all about having a squad that is strong enough to make changes and sustain good performances.

"At the moment, we are not beating people. [Jimmy] Kebe might have the chance to do that. And we know Jerome Thomas can."

With Zaha struggling for opportunities at United it has meant that he has also fallen out of favour with England manager Roy Hodgson who handed him his debut last year in the 4-2 defeat to Sweden.

The former Palace winger didn't even feature for the England Under-21's against San Marino but manager Gareth Southgate has said that he will get a chance to impress in the European Championship qualifier against Lithuania at Portman Road.

Southgate said: "it was never my intention to play him in both of our matches this week. He understood that. But he has got the opportunity now to show people what he is capable of.

"Have I noticed a lack of confidence in him? No. There is probably some frustration because he just wants to play.

"But he is at a fantastic club and he realises that to get in the team is going to take a lot of work and patience."
