22 year old returns to South London after two year spell in Manchester.
Wilfried Zaha has put an end to his terrible spell at Manchester United and re-signed with Crystal Palace, the side he left in favour of Old Trafford just two years ago.

The 22 year old has joined the Eagles on a five and a half year contract for a £3 million fee according to ESPN which would see United make an incredible loss on a player they reportedly signed for £15m in January 2013.
Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final signing for the Red Devils and may go down as one of his worst.
The England forward was immediately loaned back to Crystal Palace when he initially signed for United in 2013 and promptly helped his side to promotion.
However, he hardly made an impact during David Moyes’ ill-fated reign; making just two substitute appearances in the Premier League and one start in the League Cup.
He was eventually loaned to Cardiff but failed to save them from relegation before being sent to Crystal Palace at the beginning of this season following the arrival of Louis van Gaal.
It ends a terrible spell at Old Trafford for the youngster who now says he’s ‘delighted’ to be back at Selhurst Park.
“I wasn’t getting much game time at Manchester United so took the opportunity of coming back on loan this season and to now have the chance to make the move permanent and come home to Selhurst Park is something I’m delighted about,” he said.
“For me to be a better player I need to play more games and having a gaffer that, I know, has great trust in me gives me the confidence I need to help me improve my game.”
