Man Utd defender Ferdinand: Leicester good move for Keane

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand hopes Michael Keane can recover from his hamstring injury and resume his loan with Leicester City.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand hopes Michael Keane can recover from his hamstring injury and resume his loan with Leicester City.

The England Under-19 defender joined the Foxes on loan last week, along with team-mate Jesse Lingard, but picked up a hamstring injury during his debut against Bolton.

After returning to Carrington for treatment, it's hoped that he could be available again soon to City boss Nigel Pearson.

"It would be a good loan move if he had not got injured!" admitted Ferdinand to manutd.com. "It would have been great for him. He is a great prospect. I have spoken highly of him for a couple of years now. He has a really big future. I am just disappointed he has had a setback with a little injury."
