Zaha completes Cardiff loan move

Cardiff City coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer assesses new loan signing Wilfried Zaha, who has joined the 'Bluebirds' from Manchester United in the January transfer window.

Wilfried Zaha has finally completed his move to Cardiff and has joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on loan for the rest of the season.

Wilfried Zaha failed to really sparkle on his first competitive start for Manchester United.
Zaha has barely figured for United under Moyes.

The 21-year-old has only played 28 minutes of Premier League football for Manchester United and has not started a top-flight game since arriving at Old Trafford.

"There were a few clubs interested but we felt Cardiff was the right choice for him," United manager David Moyes told a news conference on Friday. "The boy needs to keep his development going. If he can get games at Cardiff, we'll see exactly where he is."

The England international winger becomes Solskjaer’s sixth signing of a busy January and his second from his former club after full-back Fabio da Silva also signed from United.

The 40-year-old has also brought in his fellow Norwegians Magnus Wolff Eikream, Mats Moller Daehli and Jo Inge Berget, plus striker Kenwyne Jones, who arrived from Stoke in a swap deal for Peter Odemwingie.

Zaha confirmed his arrival at Cardiff on Thursday by posting a picture of himself on his Instagram site.

He was signed by United in January 2013 but was loaned back to Crystal Palace for the rest of the season and helped the Eagles win promotion to the Premier League.

However, he only made four appearances for United after his 15 million pound switch and never found favour under manager David Moyes.
