Leicester City: Jeff Schlupp extends training stint with Manchester United
Nigel Pearson has agreed to extend Jeff Schlupp's training stint with Manchester United.
The 20-year-old has spent the past two weeks with United at their Carrington training ground, and Pearson said he was happy for Schlupp to continue his stay there.
United are understood to be very interested in the Ghana international, who came through the ranks at City as a striker, and are looking at him as a possible left-back.
Schlupp was first moved to full-back by former City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and has used him as cover for Paul Konchesky this season.

City boss Pearson said: “He has stayed there and we have agreed to extend that so I think it is a great experience for the lad.”
Pearson doesn’t think there will be much movement in or out at City before the transfer window closes at 11pm tomorrow.
City have so far recruited Chris Wood from West Bromwich Albion and defender Michael Keane’s loan from Manchester United for the rest of the season. Centre-back Cian Bolger is expected to join Bolton Wanderers on a permanent deal today.
“We always try to do our business early but, if there is any late business then, hopefully, we will get it done,” said Pearson said. “I don’t really envisage too much happening.
“I can’t say at this point (if there will be more business). If there is any further business you will find out at the appropriate time but it remains to be seen.
“It is not the easiest window to operate in because most clubs want to hang on to their players. You can sometimes find prices are inflated.
“I don’t know too many managers who are in a hurry to off load their best players.
“I am not aware of any clubs coming in for my players and, if they did, I would try to rebuff them.”
