Manchester United are prepared to let young stars Jesse Lingard and Michael Keane leave on loan this season, reports the Daily Mail.

Both of the hot prospects were taken on Manchester United's pre-season tour of Asia and subsequently impressed in equal measure.

Lingard finished as the top scorer during the tour but has yet to be given the chance to showcase his talents in a competitive fixture.

The 20-year-old in held in high regard at Old Trafford and David Moyes is to get the English winger playing regular first team football to further his development.

Championship club Birmingham are rumoured to be at the front of the queue for Lingard whilst Blackburn are concentrating their efforts on signing Keane.

Keane impressed whilst on loan at Leicester last season and was nominated for the club's player of the year award.

There were plans to give the pair outings in the Capital One Cup but a tough draw against Liverpool means a stronger team will be needed.

Fans will be pleased to hear, however, that Adnan Januzaj will not be leaving on loan after impressing on his debut against Crystal Palace.

The Belgian starlet has forced his way in to Moyes' first team plans and the club are hoping to tie him down to a long term contract in the near future.

Januzaj's contract has just a year remaining on it and the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are rumoured to be monitoring the situation. 

However Moyes remains confident and when asked if he though Januzaj would sign a new deal in a press conference, the Manchester United manager said: "Yes."
