Ipswich Town have been linked with Hull City’s Will Keane.

Ipswich Town supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on the potential arrival of Hull City striker Will Keane as Paul Lambert looks to bolster his side’s Championship survival hopes.

As reported by HITC, Ipswich are in talks to sign the former Manchester United man with Hull boss Nigel Adkins happy to move him on as he finds himself way down the pecking order at the KCOM Stadium.

 

The Tractor Boys are in desperate need of strengthening their squad this January as they now find themselves 10 points adrift of safety following the recent home defeat to fellow strugglers Millwall.

But Ipswich supporters aren’t too impressed by Keane’s career goalscoring record, with some suggesting on Twitter that he would represent an awful addition.

Keane has managed just six league goals in over 70 appearances as he has struggled with injuries and consistency throughout his career to date.

At 25, the former England U21 international is said to be looking to kick-start his career after making just 26 appearances for Hull since signing for the club back in 2016.

Keane’s contract at The Tigers expires in the summer, therefore Ipswich could either seek to sign him on the cheap now or loan him in before potentially grabbing him on a free transfer in the summer.

Paul Lambert’s men are the second lowest scorers in the Championship and if they harbour any hopes of survival this season, they will need to significantly strengthen this month and bring in a player capable of finding the net.
