I think it was an Athletic pod they were talking about this too, following Zaha right back. I think the Zaha deal is possibly the worst outgoing transfer in the club's history, given we paid 12m (euros according to Transfermarkt) and recouped 3.8m, and he's been their best player since.
I wouldn't loan him back, and if we can't recoup what we paid, I'd keep him here as a specialist full back and see whether ten Hag can somehow turn him into a footballer over time. He can be a good squad option against certain types of players. But he's obviously not a starter.
