THE future of Wilfried Zaha continues to make the headlines today.

The Manchester United winger has yet to make a start for his new team after joining from Crystal Palace in a £15m move.

Newcastle United have been linked with a loan swoop for the England international when the transfer window reopens in January.

And reports today via ESPN claimed that Fulham manager Martin Jol has ruled out a similar move for 20-year-old, which would help Newcastle’s bid.
