Wilfried Zaha has joined Cardiff City on loan as Manchester United's transfer deadline day gets off to a start with mostly rumours of outgoings.

The winger has failed to acquire much first-team action at United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has swooped to take the winger on loan, as he bids to improve his side to stay in the Premier League.

There have been stories in the press about Zaha (as well as some strange rumours) and it's not really clear how much of a future he has at United, but a good few months at Cardiff will likely have a big influence on whether he's going to be around the first team or not next season.

Hopefully, he'll do well and will come back to United a better player. It's a shame we haven't used him much, given how awful Antonio Valencia has been, but he really needs to be playing so this is probably the best thing for him if he's not going to get games at United.
