Wilfried Zaha has earmarked Newcastle United as his favoured destination for a January loan move if he remains on the Manchester United fringes, Goal understands.
Zaha has not played a single minute for the United first team since starting the Community Shield victory over Wigan Athletic in mid-August.

It is believed that Zaha and his representatives prefer the north east outfit over their Premier League rivals ahead of any potential January move, but must wait for United manager David Moyes to give the green light for the player to go on loan in the winter window.
United have ruled out the possibility of Zaha dropping down a division and going on an emergency loan to a Championship club, while the Premier League champions will not loan the England international to a rival for a Champions League place.
Zaha joined United from Palace last January in a deal worth up to £17 million before being loaned back to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the club's promotion-winning campaign.
The winger has been unable to force his way into the first-team reckoning at Old Trafford as Moyes continues to put his faith in the proven players during what has been a difficult start to his reign.
