Zaha returns to Palace permanently

first_img The 22-year-old initially returned to Selhurst Park on loan in August and, having re-signed permanently, is now looking to relaunch his career with his boyhood club. “I wasn’t getting much game time at Manchester United so took the opportunity of coming back on loan this season,” Zaha told the club’s official website, “To now have the chance to make the move permanent and come home to Selhurst Park is something I’m delighted about.” Zaha is joined at Selhurst Park by two new faces after Alan Pardew completed deals for Lee Chung-yong and Keshi Anderson before the transfer deadline. South Korea international Lee made almost 200 appearances during a five-and-a-half-year stay at Bolton. Barry Bannan has gone the other way, moving to the Macron Stadium until the end of the season, while striker Anderson has arrived from non-league Barton Rovers for an undisclosed fee. The trio join new several faces already signed by manager Pardew during a busy window, with Yaya Sanogo, Jordon Mutch, Shola Ameobi and Pape Souare all having penned deals. Wilfried Zaha’s ill-fated spell at Manchester United is over after he rejoined Crystal Palace permanently on what was a busy deadline day for the south London club. Press Associationcenter_img Two years ago the winger’s outstanding displays for the Eagles led United to come calling, paying a fee which could have reached up to £15million. However, Zaha has spent much of that time on loan and has left Old Trafford after just four appearances to rejoin Palace for an undisclosed fee, signing a five-and-a-half-year contract. last_img read more
