Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell looks set to return to action for the Red Devils tonight after his loan spell at Premier League outfit Leicester City was cut short.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the talented midfielder looks set to feature for Warren Joyce's Under-21 side at 7pm this evening as the Red Devils travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City.
Powell endured a tricky time at the King Power Stadium so it didn't come as a major surprise when he returned to the Theatre of Dreams earlier this week.
In truth, it has proved a tricky couple of years for the English youngster since moving to United, having failed to gain opportunities under the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes.
For now, though, it appears that his development will continue in the U-21 side, but it remains to be seen as to whether the Old Trafford hierarchy will look to ship him out on loan once again before the close of the January transfer window.

He will certainly be hoping to impress Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal, but with the likes of Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera and Co. plying their trade at the club, it won't be easy for Powell to force his way into first team plans.
As well as Powell, winger Jesse Lingard could star in tonight's proceedings. Lingard, of course, started in United's first Premier League fixture of the season, but was forced off after picking up a long term injury.
The likes of Ben Amos, Andreas Pereira and Will Keane should also appear as Joyce's side go in search of victory.
United will be desperate to secure all three points this evening with the club currently sitting in fifth place in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League. Norwich, on the other hand, will be hoping to climb the table with the club sitting in 10th position.
