Three possible Premier League destinations for Wilfried Zaha

Zaha Cardiff 1

Following reports that Louis van Gaal does not envision Wilfried Zaha in his future plans, the 21-year-old may now need to seek a move away from Manchester United.

Zaha arrived at Old Trafford from Crystal Palace in January 2013 for a reported £10million, which could have risen to as much as £15million based on performance related add-ons. 

After failing to make an impact at United and playing out a largely unsuccessful loan spell at Cardiff City last season, incoming Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has reportedly told the youngster to find a new club.

If the reports are true, here are three possible Premier League destinations for Zaha:

Newcastle United 

Newcastle are the side to have been most heavily linked with a move for the 21-year-old. Pardew is said to be extremely keen on adding the winger to his ranks at St James' Park, and the prospect of a cut-price deal will no doubt tempt the 52-year-old to make a move.

Pardew had shown an interest in a loan move for the United man in January, but missed out as Zaha sealed a deal to see out the season at Cardiff City.

Newcastle signed their first Englishman in over two years last month bringing Jack Colback to Tyneside, and Pardew could be in the pursuit of another as the Newcastle manager's preference of dealing in the French transfer market appears to be beginning to wane. 

Crystal Palace

Zaha came through the academy at Crystal Palace and has made over 100 first-team appearances for the Eagles.

After a remarkable turnaround in fortunes under Tony Pulis, Palace are ready to strengthen and push on next season and the return of Zaha would certainly add quality.

The 21-year-old could add serious competition for Jason Puncheon and Yanick Bolasie, and leave the Crystal Palace manager with plenty of options in the wide midfield department.

According to the Daily Mail Tony Pulis has already made inquiries regarding a deal for the United man, and a deal could progress in the coming weeks. 

Aston Villa 

Villa were among a host of Premier League sides reportedly chasing a loan deal for Zaha back in January.

Paul Lambert has a difficult summer ahead with what is expected to be small transfer kitty, and a potential cut-price deal for the 21-year-old could be too good to miss for the Villans.

So far this summer Villa have recruited only Philippe Senderos and Joe Cole (both on free transfers), meaning that it is unlikely that the club are equipped to be able to financially compete with either Newcastle or Palace for Zaha's signature, and have to be classed as outsiders in any potential chase.
