Crystal Palace agree permanent Zaha deal

Louis van Gaal has agreed to allow the winger to leave Old Trafford having been deemed surplus to requirements and having made just two appearances for the club

By Greg Stobart

Crystal Palace have agreed a deal to sign Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on a permanent basis, Goal can reveal.

Zaha, who has made 16 league appearances since joining Palace on loan in August, will now finalise personal terms ahead of an official announcement on Monday.

United have decided to offload the 22-year-old, who was initially brought to the club in a deal arranged by Sir Alex Ferguson, with Louis van Gaal unconvinced that he has a long-term future at Old Trafford.

Since signing for United back in January 2013, Zaha has been almost non-existent in the first-team, spending last season on loan with Cardiff City, after having had a furious exchange with then-manager David Moyes, before rejoining Palace in the summer transfer window.

His only two senior appearances for United came in the Community Shield and League Cup back in 2013, with the likes of Adnan Januzaj, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young having been preferred options on the wing.

The signings of Juan Mata and Angel Di Maria, as well as the emergence of James Wilson and Andreas Pereira in 2014 have done little to improve Zaha’s prospects and he is now all set to sign for the club where he started his career.

Roma confirm Ibarbo signing

The Giallorossi have paid €2.5 million to take the striker for the remainder of the 2014-15 season but can acquire the Colombian for an additional €12.5m in the summer

Roma have announced the loan signing of Victor Ibarbo from Cagliari with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.

The Giallorossi have paid the Sardinians €2.5 million to take the striker until the end of the 2014-15 campaign but can buy the 24-year-old outright in the summer for an additional €12.5m.

Roma have been looking to bolster their forward line after allowing Mattia Destro leave for AC Milan during the winter break and are also on the verge of sealing a deal for CSKA Moscow’s Seydou Doumbia.

Ibarbo, who joined Cagliari from Atletico Nacional in 2011, has scored two goals in 13 Serie A appearances so far this season.

The Colombia international’s first game for Roma could be against his former club, with the Giallorossi set to travel to the Sant’Elia next weekend.
