Man United youngster hoping for Premier League opportunity after sealing Leicester loan switch

first_img1 Manchester United youngster Nick Powell Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell does not expect to walk straight in to the Leicester City side after agreeing to join them on loan for the season.Powell moved to Old Trafford from Crewe in 2012 for around £6million and spent last season on loan at Wigan where he scored the club’s first ever European goal.But, despite his pedigree, he does not expect to stroll in to Nigel Pearson’s first-team which has made a promising start despite their failure to win a match yet this season.The Foxes have two points from three games after well-fought draws against Everton and Arsenal.“I could go to the Championship and play week-in-week-out, but the Premier League is the next step and I feel like Leicester gave me that opportunity,” he told the club’s official website.“It’s a good squad – it’s powerful and has pace and is well structured and organised. I’m hoping that I’ll do well in the Premier League – the aim is to stay up.“I’ve had a chat with the manager and he said I’ve got to fit into the team and do what the boys do. I’m best suited in the No.10, in behind to get a bit of space, turn and go for the attacking option.“I can play in a number of positions – I’ll just have to try and find which one suits me best at Leicester. I’ve got to earn my way into the team first – it’s not given to you – that’s the first step.”last_img
