Teenage defender Keane has made two appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side this season, featuring in the Capital One cup clashes against Newcastle and Chelsea.
Fellow 19-year-old Lingard, who plays in midfield, is yet to make his bow for the Red Devils' first-team, but is highly regarded at Old Trafford.
Foxes boss Nigel Pearson has moved to secure the services of the talented young duo and they are expected to go straight into his squad for Tuesday night's Championship clash with Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.
With United having exited the Capital One Cup at Stamford Bridge, Ferguson is happy for some of his young players to head out on loan so that they can gain crucial first-team experience.
