Leicester boss Pearson furious with Man Utd midfieder Powell

Leicester City are happy to rip up the loan deal of Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell.

The Sunday Telegraph says Powell has infuriated Foxes boss Nigel Pearson and his backroom team with his attitude in training and general timekeeping since joining on loan in September.

United have the option to recall the £4million midfielder in January and are poised to bring him back and then loan him out again, with the 20-year-old already emerging as a target for Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon.

He has not even been named in Leicester's 18-man squads for the last two games despite the club's alarming run of poor form.
