Nick Powell could be allowed to join Leicester City

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is keen on signing Manchester United's Nick Powell during the summer transfer window.

The Daily Express believe the recently-promoted Leicester City have placed Powell on their summer transfer wish-list as they look to bring in several reinforcements for their first year back in the Premier League.

Powell could be allowed to leave Old Trafford either on a temporary or permanent basis during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The former Crewe midfielder, who moved to Old Trafford in 2012 for a fee that could rise to £6.5million, has failed to establish himself as a member of Manchester United's squad.

The 20-year-old had to make do with playing for Manchester United's reserve side before sealing a loan move to Wigan Athletic at the start of September.

Powell scored seven goals in 31 league games for Wigan Athletic during his time at the DW Stadium - but it remains to be seen if the England Under-21 starlet can make the step up.

Leicester City would provide Powell with the perfect platform to express himself in the top-flight of English football before returning to Manchester United if the East Midlands outfit can only land the youngster on a temporary deal.
