Jeffery Schlupp's future hangs in the balance

Leicester boss refuses to disclose any future plans for his Ghanaian striker as he keeps training with the Red Devils
Ghana international striker Jeffery Schlupp's future is yet to be decided by Championship side Leicester City and current Premier League leaders Manchester United.

The Leicester forward has been training at Manchester United Carrington Training Complex for the past three weeks as Sir Alex Ferguson continues to monitor his progress and weighs up a permanent move for him.

It is understood that his trial is an indication of the strengthened relationship between the Red Devils and the Championship side.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson is still keeping silence on whether the Old Trafford side will sign Schlupp.

“I don’t know at this point. He’s still at Man United. 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,” Pearson told BBC.

Schlupp who is a product of the Leicester City Youth Academy, enjoyed a loan spell with another championship side Brentford in 2011, where he scored six goals in 10 appearances.

The 20-year-old has only managed nine appearances for Leicester City this season with no goal to his name.
