Wilfried Zaha has finally completed his move to Cardiff and has joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old has only played 28 minutes of Premier League football for Manchester United and has not started a top-flight game since arriving at Old Trafford.

Zaha becomes Solskjaer's sixth signing of a busy January and his second from his former club after full-back Fabio also signed from United.

Solskjaer has also brought in his fellow Norwegians Magnus Wolff Eikream, Mats Moller Daehli and Jo Inge Berget, plus striker Kenwyne Jones, who arrived from Stoke in a swap deal for Peter Odemwingie.

Zaha confirmed his arrival at Cardiff by posting a picture of himself on his Instagram site.

He was signed by United in January 2013 but was loaned back to Crystal Palace for the rest of the season and helped the Eagles win promotion to the Premier League.

However, he only made four appearances for United after his £15 million switch and never found favour under manager David Moyes.
