Manchester United extend Leicester City striker Jeff Schlupp's trial period at the club.

Leicester City striker Jeff Schlupp has had his trial period at Manchester United extended.

The 20-year-old has been training with the Premier League club since the middle of January, with Sir Alex Ferguson monitoring the progress of the youngster, who can also play left-back.

"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."

Schlupp has made five starts for the Foxes this season.
