United duo set for Leicester

Manchester duo Nick Powell and Tom Lawrence could be joining Leicester City on deadline day, Sky sources understand.

Powell, who spent last season on loan at Wigan, is expected to once again move on a temporary basis until the end of the current campaign.

However, the deal being discussed for Lawrence is thought to be a permanent one.

Highly-rated attacking prospect Powell moved to Old Trafford from Crewe in 2010 and has gone on to make seven appearances for United.

The 20-year-old made 41 appearances during his loan spell with Wigan, scoring on 12 occasions.

Forward Lawrence was handed his first-team debut for United by interim manager Ryan Giggs at the end of last season in the 3-1 win over Hull City.
