Manchester United are extending the trial of Leicester City midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp.

Schlupp has been training with the Barclays Premier League leaders since the middle of January and this second extension to the arrangement will see the 20-year-old striker finish the month with Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"He's stayed there, we've agreed to extend that," Leicester boss Nigel Pearson told Press Association Sport. "I have spoken to him a few times and Jeff is enjoying himself there, things are going well. I think it's great experience for the lad."
