As had been expected, Manchester United have finally secured the services of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha for a fee believed to be around £15 million.
The talented youngster is to undergo a medical at the club in the next 48 hours and if all is well he will put pen to paper on a five and a half year contract with United.
Sir Alex Ferguson has beaten the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Zaha who earned his first England cap in November.
As part of the deal, the 20-year-old will be immediately loaned back to Palace for the rest of the season as they try to win promotion to the Premier League from the Championship.
Zaha has scored 15 goals in 124 appearances for The Eagles and will join other young England players such as Danny Wellbeck, Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling as Ferguson puts together the next generation at Old Trafford.
Having come up through the ranks at Selhurst Park, Zaha has impressed over the last 18 months and gained widespread acknowledgement when he was awarded the Football League Player Of The Year title in 2012.
