Bolton in loan bid for Manchester United outcast Wilfried Zaha
Out-of-favour winger may get chance to be reunited with former Palace boss Dougie Freedman after being frozen out at Old Trafford
Bolton boss Dougie Freedman wants to help out Wilfried Zaha - by signing him on loan from Manchester United, writes
Alan Nixon in the Sunday People.
Freedman was Zaha's manager and mentor at Crystal Palace and guided the exciting winger on his way to a big-money move to
However Zaha's high-flying career has stalled dramatically as he drops out of the United squad and slipped from the England seniors to the under-21 side.
Boss David Moyes, who inherited Zaha from Sir Alex Ferguson, is not giving up on Zaha just yet but
may let him out to play.
Zaha is in the reserves and even missed out on the Champions League trip to Ukraine as his stock hits an all-time low at United.
The emergence of wonder boy Adnan Januzaj - and Moyes's need to use him - has pushed Zaha a place further out of the queue for a game.
Freedman would take Zaha for a month - or more - if it helps his club, United and the player at a difficult time.
The Bolton chief has had a rough start to the season himself but landing Zaha - as soon as possible - would give his new-look side a lift.
Moyes's reserves have few fixtures coming up and Zaha who may not even get in the Capital One Cup side as he is out of the picture.
