Manchester United youngster Nick Powell could be sent out on loan in the New Year to help aid his development.
The prospect of Powell going out temporarily has been discussed - and a queue of Championship clubs are desperate to take the midfielder.
Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of Powell and has high hopes for the player signed in a £4m deal from Crewe in the summer.
The 18-year-old has made six appearances so far this season, scoring once, and United have been impressed with how he has settled in.
Now, the next stage in his development would be playing regularly and United are keen to see him in action on loan for the rest of the season.
Leicester are one of the clubs rumoured to be interested in Powell, but a final decision on whether to send him on loan has yet to be taken.
