Sheffield Wednesday look to have fended off interest from Steve Clarke’s Reading for the signature of the promising striker.

The 22-year-old forward is not currently in the first-team plans of United manager Louis Van Gaal, and subsequently looks set for a loan move away from the club.

Keane been at the Red Devils all of his professional career, although he did enjoy loan spells at Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers in the past few seasons.

The 6ft 2 striker amassed four appearances whilst on loan at Wigan Athletic in 2013, but he failed to find the back of the net for the Latics.

In 2014, he went on loan to Queens Park Rangers, and there he accumulated nine appearances however again failed to find the net.

Keane has been a relatively prominent figure in the England national side from under-16 level up to under-21 level.

The striker has found his career has been plagued with injury, and in 2012 he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury which ruled him out for 16 months.

Fans and supporters of Sheffield Wednesday will be hoping Keane can hit the ground running and showcase the form and ability that Manchester United saw in him.

Stuart Gray’s Sheffield Wednesday currently sit in ninth place in the Sky Bet Championship, having accumulated 37 points from 26 league games.

Gray will be hoping the addition of Will Keane can help bolster their attacking options, and subsequently aid their attempt to reach a play-off spot.
