Newcastle United lead a pack of ten clubs all interested in taking Wilfried Zaha on loan in January.

David Moyes claims not to have been officially contacted about the player yet, although it is understood that Everton, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, West Ham United, Aston Villa and Swansea City are among the clubs keen on Zaha.

A move to Newcastle might well be United's first choice too, with the best chance that Zaha could help the club take points off rivals - much like Chelsea are experiencing with Romelu Lukaku at Everton.

Alan Pardew is keen on the move and with a difficult run of fixtures coming in the new year, that includes Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Arsenal and Liverpool, he understandably wants some more attacking options.

Zaha has had a curious season following his £15m move from Crystal Palace, with Moyes yet to hand him a league start.

However unsurprisingly given his potential, there is no shortage of clubs looking to give him first team football and it seems certain he will go out on loan this January.
