Will Keane's proposed loan move to Wigan is on hold until Manchester United discover the extent of a foot injury the youngster sustained on England Under-21 duty this week.

Keane has recovered from the knee problem that kept him out for the whole of last season and Red Devils boss David Moyes has granted a temporary switch to Wigan in a bid to build up the 20-year-old's fitness.

Latics boss Owen Coyle had hoped the move could be sanctioned ahead of this weekend's Championship encounter with Brighton at the DW Stadium.
