There’s news this morning that Manchester United youngster Wilfried Zaha, who was a target of Newcastle’s while he was Crystal Palace and before he signed on with the Red Devils last January, would be keen to come on loan at Newcastle this January, to get some first team playing time.
Wilfried Zaha – cannot get a game at the Red Devils
The report is in Goal, and it’s a decent bet the Ivory Coast born youngster will be loaned out in January, since he’s only played once so far this season for Manchester United, and that was in their very first game – the Charity Shield match against Wigan.
The Red Devils are on the same points total as Newcastle – with just seven – but of course they have a better goal difference of zero compared to Newcastle’s -4, which is already the 4th worst in the league. 🙁
The news is that Newcastle, Swansea City, West Brom and Stoke City as well as previous club Crystal Palace, have all made inquiries about a potential five month loan deal in January.
Wilfried turns 21 next month, and is said to prefer Newcastle in the bunch of clubs seeking his services.
But since Wilfried plays in the style of Sammy Ameobi, shouldn’t we be giving first team chances to local youngster Sammy, rather than developing a player who be wearing the Manchester United colors in future years?
Tell us what you think about this – we think this will restrict the games Sammy will get, if Zaha does come on board in January.
