Zaha Joins Cardiff On Loan

Manchester United starlet, Wilfried Zaha, has joined Cardiff on loan until the end of the season.

Cardiff manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, confirmed the deal after he already added Fabio and Kenwyne Jones recently.

"That signing should be done by now. His name is on the paperwork. He is a Cardiff player,” Solksjaer said about the 21-year-old.

"He has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will give us that extra change of tempo in the final third, where we really need it.

"He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic."

The former Manchester United striker doesn’t believe Zaha has anything to prove and will be impartial to keep the Bluebirds in the league.

"I don't think he has something to prove, he wants to play," said the former Red Devils striker.

"He played a few games at United, but maybe not what he hoped for when he went there.

"He wants to play, to play with confidence and keep Cardiff in the Premier League."

Solskjaer also confirmed striker Andreas Cornelius, signed for £8million by Mackay last summer, is in talks over a return to FC Copenhagen.
