Manchester United have agreed a deal for Hull City to take striker Will Keane on a permanent deal.
Manchester United’s official website confirmed:
Will Keane is joining Hull City on a permanent basis after the striker agreed a switch to the KCOM Stadium.
With all sorts of takeover problems afoot at Hull the club will be delighted to add another senior member to a squad which currently only houses 13 footballers.
And the writing has been on the wall for Keane at Manchester United for some time. The addition of Zlatan on a free transfer this summer meant that the 23-year-old was competing with the Swede as well as stars like Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial for a place in the starting XI.
A decent goalscorer with power in the shot and good positioning, Keane has always done well at youth level for Manchester United but never managed to make the breakthrough to the seniors on a regular basis.
He played just three times for Manchester United over the space of 6 seasons in and around the first team squad. Keane scored under Jose Mourinho in pre-season but it wasn’t enough to safeguard his future at the club.
The fee is thought to be around £1m and it’s a three year contract. Keane could make his debut against his brother Michael, who now plays for Burnley having also found himself on the periphery at Old Trafford.
Let’s see some of Keane’s best moments for the club of his boyhood.
