Pearson Quiet on Schlupp’s United Progress

Leicester City Manager Nigel Pearson has refused to rule out the possibility of Jeffrey Schlupp joining Manchester United on a permanent basis.

The 20-year-old Ghana international is now in the third week of a trial period with the Premier League leaders which was originally scheduled to end at the start of the month.

The youngster made his name on loan at Brentford during the 2010-11 season scoring 6 goals in 10 games.

He is mainly known as a striker but has been used at left-back while at Old Trafford.

Asked whether Schlupp may sign for the Premier League side, Pearson said he “didn’t know at this point”.

Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester: “He’s still at Man Utd. It’s as it was.”

“It’s an arrangement between the two clubs and Jeff is enjoying himself there. Both clubs are happy and we will see where it takes us.”

Schlupp who came through Leicester’s youth system, has made 34 appearances for the club in total with 9 of those coming earlier this season.
