Will Keane comments on possibility of Sheffield Wednesday return

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Manchester United owned Will Keane says he'd be open to returning to Sheffield Wednesday.

Manchester United owned Will Keane says there is a chance that he could return to Sheffield Wednesday next season, with quotes covered by the Sheffield Star.

Keane scored three goals as a part of the Owls squad, before an ankle injury ended his association with the club temporarily.

He’s open to another spell with the Championship giants, but has detailed things which need to happen before he’s back with Stuart Gray’s team.

“I think there is a chance of me coming back. I’ve still got to go back to United, I’ve still got a few years left there on my contract,” he said.

“I need to go back, reassess it and speak to them to see if I’ll be getting an opportunity. If that doesn’t work out I’ll have to assess my situations and consider my options – I just want to be playing football and enjoying it.”

Keane is still a very young man at just 22-years-old but he will want to be in a situation where he’s first choice in an attack.

That’s extremely unlikely to happen at Old Trafford with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie up front, with the potential of new arrivals at the Premier League side over the summer.

Wednesday have a good chance to reassess things after this weekend and look at areas they can add players to put themselves into a position where they will be competing for a place in the top six over 2015/2016.

Keane may not have set the world alight in his spell with the Owls this season, but he’s certainly capable of doing a job up front for the side and he’d be a positive cost effective option, if the club can secure another loan deal.
