Wilfried Zaha is headed back to Crystal Palace.

Zaha was a hotshot prospect when he left Palace for Manchester United in a 2013 deal worth close to $23 million, and he spent two loan stints with the Eagles once he moved to Old Trafford, as well as another loan to Cardiff City.

He was 20 then, and made a total of 4 appearances for United in his time away from Selhurst Park. Zaha was considered a target for current Palace boss Alan Pardew when he held the same post at Newcastle United.

Sky Sports reports that it’s a five-and-a-half year deal and an undisclosed fee. Zaha says he’s happy to be home.
