Borussia Monchengladbach will wait on the outcome of surgery on Manchester United youngster Joshua King before deciding on a loan move.
The 19-year-old, a 2008 signing from Valerenga, requires an operation after picking up an injury while on Norway Under-21 international duty earlier this month.
Bundesliga outfit Monchengladbach are keen to bring in the attacker on a season-long loan, but admit concerns over his long-term fitness.
"We have to see how long it will take him to recover after this operation and whether it makes sense to borrow him," Borussia sporting director Max Eberl told the club's official website.
"Our medical department is in contact with the doctors of Manchester United and from the information they give us it will ultimately depend on whether the transfer will occur or not."
King, who spent time at Preston last season, is expected to make a decision on another loan deal in August, should the German outfit pursue their interest.
