Manchester United youngster Michael Keane would be happy to return to Blackburn on loan, according to Sky Sports.

Keane, who has been at Rovers for the past two months, has appeared twice for the Red Devils, both in the League Cup, and has since been out on loan three times.

He spent much of last campaign with Leicester City and formed a solid partnership with captain Wes Morgan, whilst earlier this season he made a handful of appearances at Derby County.

Speaking to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, Keane said: "If I was to come back to the Championship I would definitely consider Blackburn because the club has been great for me and I seriously think next year we'll be pushing for promotion."

But Keane is waiting to see on the next Manchester United manager before making his decision. "First things first I need to go back to Manchester United this week and see who becomes the new manager. I'll then have to speak to whoever that is and take it from there really."

The tall centre-back has made eight appearances for the England Under-21 side, scoring an impressive three goals from defence, the same amount that he scored in his short spell with Blackburn.

A return to the Lancashire side could be likely for Keane, who impressed as a part of a Blackburn side who finished the season unbeaten in 12 games.

Keane also has a twin brother, Will, who has this season been on loan with Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers.
