LEICESTER CITY are plotting a January move for Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek, according to reports.
The midfielder returned to Old Trafford over the summer having spent the second half of last season on loan at Everton.
Van de Beek's arrival back in Manchester saw him reunite with old Ajax boss Erik ten Hag and looked like giving him a new lease of life at the Theatre of Dreams.
But the Netherland international's struggles have continued during the early months of the season.
He's yet to start a game and has played just 19 minutes in United's first eight competitive fixtures,
Van de Beek did come off the bench in each of Ten Hag's first three matches in charge, but he's not featured since the win over Liverpool.

The report claims that he could come in as a replacement for Youri Tielemans, who could leave in January, with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
The Foxes are being linked with a loan deal with a £13m option to buy the Dutchman.
