Manchester United want Wilfried Zaha to join Newcastle on loan in the January transfer window despite the winger's reluctance to move to the North East.
Zaha is known to have reservations about locating to Tyneside for the rest of the season and was leaning towards a move to West Brom, which is closer to his hometown of London.

Stoke City, Fulham, Swansea City and Everton have also expressed an interest in Zaha, whom United have decided to loan out, providing that they can negotiate a loan fee and an agreement to cover his wages.
Zaha has struggled to settle at United since his summer arrival from Crystal Palace in a £17 million deal and made his first Premier League appearance as a second-half substitute in a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle on December 7.
He has also found life difficult away from football in the North West and regularly returns to London to spend time with family and friends.
United hope that a spell at Newcastle would help Zaha gain valuable experience on and off the pitch as he looks to justify the club's huge outlay to sign him.
The youngster has made just three official appearances for United in all competitions and has found himself behind Shinji Kagawa, Antonio Valencia, Adnan Januzaj, Ashley Young and Nani in the pecking order at Old Trafford.
