Jesse Lingard and Michael Keane: Staying until January 2

The duo joined the Foxes at the start of November and will now remain with the Championship promotion challengers until January 2 2013.

Lingard played for United's Under-21 side on Monday and helped create Federico Macheda's goal in the 1-1 draw at Southampton before he was sent-off for handling the ball on the line. The 19-year-old has made four appearances for Leicester.

However, Keane's spell at the King Power Stadium was curtailed by a hamstring injury he sustained making his debut for the Foxes against Bolton on November 6.

The England Under-19 centre-back will link-up with Nigel Pearson's squad when he reaches full fitness.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
