Ipswich Town are closing in on the signing of striker Will Keane from Championship rivals Hull City, HITC Sport understands.

Keane is well down the pecking order at Hull and Tigers boss Nigel Adkins is willing to let him move on.


The 25-year-old has made 10 appearances in all competitions for Hull so far this season, but only three of those have been starts.

Keane has seen his progress at Hull blighted by injury since joining the club from Manchester United in the summer of 2016.

Keane, who has represented England at youth level all the way up from Under-16 to Under-21s, has made just 26 appearances for Hull due to injuries.

Ipswich boss Paul Lambert is desperate to bolster his side's attacking options and he is ready to offer Keane the chance of regular first-team football at Portman Road.

Keane is looking to kick-start his career by playing regularly and is prepared to make the move to Ipswich.

Ipswich are the second lowest scorers in the Championship this season and they find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table, 10 points adrift of safety.
