• Cardiff City favourites to agree deal for winger
• Manager waits for injury news on Ashley Young and Nani
Wilfried Zaha may be allowed to go on loan by David Moyes, once the Manchester United manager has weighed up his options in wide positions as he waits for injury news from Ashley Young and Nani.
Moyes has Adnan Januzaj, Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa as three players who can operate in the position and with it being unclear when Young, who has a shoulder issue and Nani, a hamstring problem, might return, the Scot has yet to decide if he can afford to lose Zaha for the rest of the season.
Cardiff City are favourites to sign the 21-year-old, the strong links of the new manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with United – from his time there as a player and reserve team coach – helping to push his club ahead of Stoke City and Newcastle United in the battle to sign Zaha.
Moyes wants regular Premier League football for Zaha, along with a guarantee that the coaching he will receive can best help to develop the winger, who has struggled to establish himself at Old Trafford.
