Manchester United starlets set for loan deals

Jesse Lingard and Michael Keane are both being eyed for loan deals by Championship clubs.

The pair, who are both considered to have bright futures at Old Trafford, haven't yet been the subject of any formal offers, but it is believed Blackburn are weighing up a move for Keane, and Birmingham are interested in taking on Lingard.

20-year-old Keane impressed for England U21's against Moldova on Thursday night, but has yet to make a senior competitive appearance for the Red Devils. The Stockport born centre-half spent last season on loan and Leicester City, and has been earmarked as a candidate to fill the shoes of Rio Ferdinand in the long-run.

Lingard meanwhile enjoyed a successful pre-season with United, netting a number of times in friendly matches. He too was on loan at Leicester City last year, and it's believed that Birmingham are willing to offer him first-team football for the season as they look to improve their attacking options.

David Moyes may see both deals as the ideal opportunity to give the young duo further chance the impress. Neither are likely to feature in the first-team at Old Trafford this season, but could be primed to break onto the scene next year if their careers progress as expected.
