Foxes Keane on United defender

Leicester City have secured the signature of Manchester United defender Michael Keane to extend his loan spell at the King Power Stadium until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old, initially on loan until the end of this month, is the latest player to join the Foxes from the Premier League giants in a growing relationship that has seen the likes of Jesse Lingard, Richie de Laet, Matty James and Danny Drinkwater all arrive on loan on permanent deals since Nigel Pearson re-joined the Foxes in October 2011.
The City gaffer told the BBC he has taken-up the option to keep Keane following his progress so far this season.

"It's still a steep learning curve for he has done exceptionally well so far and I am very pleased," he said.
