After five goals in one game should Leeds United look at loan deal for Will Keane?

Manchester United 3

The Manchester United youngster has not been a regular goalscorer on previous loan moves to the Championship.

Last night Manchester United's under-21s thrashed Norwich City 7-0 with the likes of Memphis Depay and Adnan Januzaj on show.

But it was neither of these two highly rated youngsters who really caught the eye. That role went to young striker Will Keane.

He scored five goals, including a stunning chip, to show some of his obvious talent in the fixture.

So should Leeds United make a move?

Leeds doing business with Manchester United might feel like a painful thought for most Leeds fans but the club are clearly in the hunt for a striker.

Kyle Lafferty remains the name on the lips of many, but that deal has rumbled itself into submission at times.

Keane would be a cheaper option with perhaps more chance of being a long-term deal.

The problem in the past would have been Keane's form in the Championship. He has struggled to score regularly at Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End - despite him being highly rated in the United circles.

Leeds however would be right to swoop now. His confidence will be sky high and that might be all he needs to find the net regularly in the second tier.

Plenty of names are likely to be linked with Leeds in the weeks to come, with the emergency loan window now being open. Keane should be one of them.
