Manchester United's Michael Keane enjoying loan spell at Leicester City
Michael Keane believes his loan spell with Leicester City has made him a better player – but says the fans have still to see the best of him.
The 20-year-old is enjoying his first taste of first-team football on loan from Manchester United.
Keane says he has learned so much in the short time he has been at the King Power Stadium, and has looked so impressive alongside captain Wes Morgan at the heart of defence in the last six games, when just three goals have been conceded.
The England under-19 international says playing with experienced players, like Morgan and left-back Paul Konchesky, has helped him adapt to the demands of the Championship.

In addition, he has benefited from manager Nigel Pearson, who himself was a top-flight central defender in his playing days.
"It is good to have a manager who has played in the same position because, whatever advice he gives you, you know he knows what he is talking about because he played at a good standard," said Keane, ahead of tomorrow's trip to face Peterborough United.
"I am definitely becoming a better player. Playing in his team and the way he plays football, being at the top of the division, it is really helping me develop.
"I am getting used to being in a winning team and pushing to win the league is great experience.
"Playing with the likes of Wes and Paul has helped me a lot. They are always talking to me and passing on advice. In difficult situations, they tell me what to do and how to approach things in a different way.
"It is great playing with players who have that kind of experience and I can only learn from them."
Keane says he has been happy with his form but knows he still has plenty to learn.
"I don't think I have played to my best ability yet but, hopefully, that will come soon," he said.
"I am happy with majority of my games. There were a couple where I made a few mistakes. I know that will happen. Hopefully, I can erase them.
"It has been going really well recently. The whole team has been playing well and we work well as a unit.
"I think it has been tough for the manager to change the team since we have been undefeated. Hopefully, we can keep that going at Peterborough."
