Manchester United defender Michael Keane will remain on loan with Leicester City for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year old joined the Foxes in November last year and was due to return to Old Trafford following Thursday's clash with Wolves but has now signed on, delighting King Power Stadium boss Nigel Pearson.

"I'm really pleased that Michael will be staying with us until the end of the season," he said.

"It's been a steep learning curve for him, but he has done exceptionally well for us."

Keane has made a total of six appearances for Leicester, four of which have been starts in the Championship.
