Man Utd pleased with Keane progress at Leicester
Despite their league priorities, Leicester are also still involved in the FA Cup and, if Pearson's side are successful in a home replay against Huddersfield, Keane should line up against Wigan in the fifth round of the competition.
"Michael Keane's done great but the whole team is flying and it helps with Ritchie De Laet playing well, while Danny Drinkwater and Matty James are also impressing," Reserves boss Warren Joyce told ManUtd.com. "Even the lad Ben Marshall was at United at youth level as well. It helps having those guys around."
