Ipswich Town have confirmed the signing of former striker Will Keane on a free transfer after being released by Hull City during the summer.
He signs a one-year deal at Portman Road club which includes the option for Ipswich to extend the deal by an extra-year if they want to next summer.
Keane spent the second half of last season on loan with the Tractor Boys under Paul Lambert, netting three goals in 12 appearances as they were relegated from the Championship.
Graduating through the Manchester United youth system, making just three first-team appearances, Keane spent time out on loan with Wigan, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End before signing permanently for Hull in the summer of 2016.
During his time with the Tigers, however, he managed just one goal in 26 appearances as injuries started to blight his time with the Yorkshire club.
Ipswich currently sit in eighth place in the League One table with three matches played and are yet to be beaten, picking up draws against fellow promotion hopefuls Sunderland and Peterborough United in their last two matches.
This could be an excellent signing for Ipswich.
Considering the bad luck he has suffered in his career, it made sense for him to return to a club where he had such an enjoyable time – irregardless of the relegation.
He clearly feels that Paul Lambert is somebody who can get the best out of him and if he can stay injury free then he could form a very dangerous partnership with James Norwood.
