Dougie Freedman says that Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha will not be "fazed" by his surroundings at Manchester United.

Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman is confident that Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha will make an impact at Manchester United.

The 20-year-old is expected to join the Red Devils on a five-and-a-half-year contract worth £15m this week.

Freedman, who coached the England international during his managerial stint at Selhurst Park, does not expect the winger to be overawed by his new teammates.

"He won't be fazed by it, he has a certain arrogance but expresses his talent in any surroundings and that will be no different at United," The Express quotes Freedman as saying.

Zaha is expected to finish the season on loan at Palace.
