Manchester United youngsters on trial with Leicester City Under-18s

Manchester United youngsters Chris Popov and Jahmari Lindsay are on trial with Leicester City.

The 16-year-olds were named in the starting lineup as the young Foxes hosted Southampton in the Under-18 Premier League this afternoon.

Popov started out on the left wing, with Lindsay supporting him from left back. At the time of writing, it is half time in the game, with Leicester leading 1-0 through an Oli Ewing strike.

A former winner of the Victory Shield at international level, Popov has played for Manchester United since the age of 11 but is now looking to secure a new club after failing to secure a scholarship at Old Trafford.

Lindsay has previously been on trial with Huddersfield Town as he also looks to find a new club.
