Manchester United-bound forward Wilfried Zaha has apologised for making an obscene gesture during Crystal Palace's meeting with Leeds United on Saturday.

Zaha, 20, was seen showing his middle finger to Leeds supporters as Palace played out a 2-2 draw with their Championship rivals at Selhurst Park.

The England international, who signed for the Red Devils in January before being loaned back to Palace for the remainder of the season, said his actions were "unprofessional".

Zaha tweeted: "I want to apologise for the gesture I did towards the Leeds fans in yesterday's game. Very unprofessional from me."

Zaha has played in 35 of Palace's 37 league games this season, scoring six times for the club he will leave in the summer after a fee in the region of £15 million was agreed in January.
