Cardiff City have a renewed hope that they can complete a loan move for Manchester United outcast Wilfried Zaha this week.

Sources close to the deal have told Sportsmail that a move might even be done as soon as Thursday, with David Moyes fast losing patience with the winger.

The United manager was initially reluctant to let the 21-year-old leave while Ashley Young and Nani were injured, but Young’s return and Moyes’s continued issues with Zaha’s behaviour have accelerated the process.
