Keane's stay at the npower Championship club was due to finish after next week's home league clash with Wolves.

City boss Nigel Pearson said: "He will be here until the end of the season and we are pleased we can extend it.

"He has done well for us and he has played well. This is a good chance for him to get more league experience."

Keane initially linked up with Leicester in November along with fellow United youngster Jesse Lingard but was injured making his debut at Bolton.

The 19-year-old returned to United for treatment but, after both players' loans were extended to January 2, with Keane's deal extended further until the end of this month, he returned to City's starting line-up for the 6-1 hammering of Huddersfield on New Year's Day.

The latest extension will be officially confirmed next week.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
