Transfer news: Manchester United taking 'good look' at Leicester City striker Schlupp
Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has revealed young striker Jeff Schlupp has been training with Manchester United.
The 20-year-old has spent the last week training with the Premier League leaders.
Pearson said it was "a good opportunity" for the Ghana international.
Pearson said if nothing materialised from Schlupp's stint at United, then he would consider letting Schlupp go out on loan.

"He is training with them at the moment," said Pearson.
"I have allowed him to go there for a week. It is a great opportunity for him. We have a good relationship with United and I am not going to stand in his way to go there for a week's training.
"If anything comes of it, we will wait and see. They have had a good look at him.."
Schlupp has made five starts this season but the majority of them have been at left-back as cover for Paul Konchesky.
But Schlupp, who is a graduate of City's academy system, is highly rated as a striker and made an impact at Brentford during a loan spell in 2011, scoring six times in 10 appearances.
The move is the latest example of City's burgeoning relationship with United, which has seen Michael Keane and Jesse Lingard arrive on loan.
