Crystal Palace open to return of Man Utd's Cardiff loanee Zaha

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has admitted that a return for Wilfried Zaha could be a possibility this summer.

The 21-year old winger signed with Manchester United in January 2013 before returning to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the season.

Zaha then struggled to force his way into David Moyes' Red Devils first team and was subsequently loaned to Cardiff City this past January which has prompted Parish to talk about another south London comeback for the two-time England international.

"Wilf's a fantastic player, I certainly think we would be interested," he told Sky Sports.

"United have not said anything official, he's their player, but if a player like that did become available then I am sure we would be interested.

"If we are fortunate enough to stay in the division, we will be looking to kick on and establish ourselves and try to get up to mid-table and be a bit more comfortable.

"Wilfried is a player who is worthy of the division and is a player who could help anybody. We saw him come on for Cardiff at the weekend and he changed the game, so if a situation arose for that kind of player, of course we would be interested."
