It is understood that England Under-21 winger Zaha will join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side for the remainder of the season for a fee in the region of £1.5m.

The 21-year-old has been restricted to just four appearances for United this season, one of which came in the Community Shield win over Wigan.

A move to south Wales would allow the former Crystal Palace man some much needed regular first-team action.

With Theo Walcott ruled out of the World Cup later this year Zaha will no doubt hope to catch the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson during his loan spell at Cardiff.

Meanwhile, Stoke striker Jones is set to join Cardiff in a swap deal that will see Nigeria international Peter Odemwingie move the other way.

Jones was fined and dropped earlier this month after sending a text message to Mark Hughes the night before Stoke's 5-3 home league defeat to Liverpool on January 12 saying to say he was not available to play.

Speaking to Sky Sports News upon arrival at St George's Park Jones said: "Of course (I'm excited about the move). It's playing football so I'm really happy to go and try and help Cardiff City stay in the Premier League."
