Transfer news: Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign highly-rated winger Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old, who won his first England cap in November, will finish the season with Palace and link up with United in July under the terms of the agreed deal.

A statement on United’s official website read: “Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Wilfried Zaha have reached an agreement for the player to join Manchester United in July 2013.

“The player is having a medical in Manchester today (Friday, January 25).

“There will be no further comment by any party until Wilfried joins United in July 2013.”

Palace confirmed that Zaha had agreed personal terms and that he had been loaned back to them for the remainder of the current campaign.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: “We are signing a player of potential. We always feel we develop players well. We have proved that many times. We hope the boy enjoys coming here, when he comes in the summer.”
