Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is delighted with their loan deal for Manchester United pair Jesse Lingard and Michael Keane.

Both players signed for the Foxes yesterday.

"We have been operating with a smaller, more balanced squad this season, but we felt the time was right to increase the options available to us," said manager Pearson on Leicester's official website.

"Not only do Michael and Jesse add a great deal of quality to the group, they are also the type of hungry, young players that will fit in well with what is already a very strong squad."
