Freedman, who worked with Zaha during his time in charge of Crystal Palace, also played down the prospect of being reunited with the winger, albeit with his tongue in his cheek.
"He's coming into the building right now, doing his medicals and we're signing him permanently," joked Freedman. "People gossip and things get out - but they are putting two and two together because I had him at Crystal Palace.
"There has been no contact between me and David Moyes on Zaha and no contact between me and the chairman on bringing Zaha here."
