Zaha confirms permanent Manchester United exit

Wilfied Zaha has confirmed his return to Crystal Palace in a reported €8 million move from Manchester United after initially joining the club loan in the summer.

Goal reported on Sunday that the 22-year-old had been allowed to leave United after Louis van Gaal became unconvinced of his long-term future at the club.

Zaha moved from Selhurst Park to Old Trafford in 2013 but his career at Old Trafford failed to ignite as he made just four appearances in all competitions before joining Cardiff City on loan last January.

He returned to Palace on loan in August and following 19 outings and one goal this term manager Alan Pardew has moved to make Zaha's stay a long-term one.

Crystal Palace are currently 13th in the Premier League, four points above the relegation zone.
