Jefferey Schlupp's trials at Manchester United extended

The Championship side has confirmed Ghana's Schlupp will spend more time with English giants Manchester United

Ghana international striker Jeffery Schlupp has had his trial with English giants Manchester United extended.

Schlupp has been training with the current league leaders since the middle of January and have had his trial extended hoping to impress the Red Devils to secure himself a deal.

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."

"He's stayed there; we've agreed to extend that."

The versatile player who has spent most of his youth career playing for Leicester City has made 27 appearances with two goals.

The 20-year-old's fate will be decided as Manchester United is expected to make a decision on his future on Thursday.
