Man Utd midfielder Powell on Preston radar

Championship club Preston North End are eyeing Manchester United's Nick Powell.

Report suggest that the Lilywhites are keen to bring the 21-year-old to Deepdale as they look to launch an assault on the Championship playoff places in the second half of the season.

Powell, who spent part of last season with Leicester City, enjoyed a successful loan in the second division with Wigan Athletic in 2013/14 and Preston boss Simon Grayson is hoping he can have a similar impact in Lancashire.

The former Crewe Alexandra ace has made just two senior appearance sunder Louis van Gaal this season.
