Leicester City striker Jeffrey Schlupp is edging closer to a Manchester United deal.

Schlupp could have earned a permanent move to Old Trafford with his performance for the Under-21s on Monday against Liverpool, says the Mirror. <> The trialist from Leicester played in attack and, although spurning a couple of chances, he caused the Merseysiders problems all night. Schlupp, who can also play left-back, has been with the Reds for some time.
