David Moyes is reportedly keen on sending England under-21 midfielder Wilfried Zaha out on loan. Despite the speculation, Moyes insists there hasn't been any enquiries for the player and his location for the rest of the season still remains a mystery.
The United supremo said ''I did say to Wilf if I didn't feel he was getting enough games, I would consider it [a loan]
''Obviously if we got injuries or other reasons, I wouldn't take it on board.
''But truth is we haven't had anyone phoning up and wanting to do that at the moment. While it's like that, I am fine.''
The winger was signed for a reported £15 million in the summer, but has found first team opportunities difficult to come by and a loan has been touted as the best possible solution. According to Moyes, the player is still in the future plans of the club, so he has reiterated that he will only be allowed to leave on a short-term loan deal.
One club that has maximised their potential in the loan market and would be a good destination for the player, is Everton.
In the summer Roberto Martinez signed 3 loan players and all of them have played a major part in the clubs outstanding rise up the league table. Gareth Barry was signed on a season long loan from Manchester City, Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona and the star in the crown was Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.
Martinez even claimed that the reputation of the loan environment at Everton has provoked Europe's top clubs to offer more of their top talent with a view to a loan move next season. Although, I believe Everton could make the best use of their reputation in January by signing starlet Zaha on loan until the end of the season.
This season may have spread some doubt over the players ability, and potential. But I believe it is worth mentioning that last season, he was noted as the most promising player that played in the Football League. This includes Ross Barkley, who spent time on loan at Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday.
If anyone can get the talent to shine just in time for the World Cup, then I believe Martinez may just be the man.
