Championship - United chief: We are looking at Zaha

Manchester United chief executive David Gill confirmed the Premier League leaders’ reported interest in Wilfried Zaha, but says any deal would happen in the summer.

The Crystal Palace forward has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park all season, and the Red Devils have been installed as the favourites to win the race for the England international’s signature ahead of Arsenal.

But Gill added a further wrinkle to the plot on Wednesday when he admitted that the club are tracking Zaha, but insisted they would not make a move until the close season.

"He is one of the players that we are looking at - that is all I will say at the moment," Gill told Sky Sports News. "Even if we did do something with Wilfried, that would be for the summer. "I've been in football too long to say that is not done until it's done. He's one of the players we are looking at, but it is far from done."
