Manchester United will put plans to loan out starlet Will Keane on hold, reports the Daily Mirror. 

The 20-year-old has attracted interest from a number of clubs since returning from a knee injury with Bolton and Wigan Athletic thought to be leading the chase.

It was thought Keane would be loaned out gain experience like other United starlets Nick Powell and Jesse Lingard - both of which are shining for new clubs Wigan and Birmingham.

Powell recently scored a brace for Wigan in the Europa League, including a sensational solo effort whilst Lingard score four goal on his debut for Birmingham.

However, the national paper is reporting that David Moyes is reluctant to see Keane drop down to the Championship and will instead keep the highly rated youngster at Old Trafford to give him game-time for the Premier League champions.

England under-21 international Keane has made just one appearance for Manchester United so far, coming on as a substitute in a 3-2 defeat to Blackburn in 2011.

A serious knee ligament injury sustained whilst on duty for the England under-19 side means he is yet to put on the red of Manchester United since - he has now returned to full fitness.
