Ipswich Town signed Will Keane from Hull City on a six-month loan deal.
Hull City’s Will Keane has told the East Anglia Daily Times that a permanent switch to loan club Ipswich Town would definitely interest him even if the club were to suffer relegation to League One.
“Yeah, definitely. I’ve been really impressed by the size of the club and all the facilities. It’s something I’ve really enjoyed being a part of so far,” Keane explained to the EADT.
“I’ll have to weigh up the options in the summer and see what else is open to me. It’s still a bit early at the minute. But hypothetically, if the club was interested, then I would be massively interested too. We’ll see what happens.”
Keane became one of Paul Lambert’s first signings for Ipswich in January, arriving on loan until the end of the season.
The former Manchester United man had fallen out of favour at Hull, with Fraizer Campbell, Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki nailing down regular starting positions in attack at the KCOM Stadium.
Keane had made just one start and seven substitute appearances for Hull prior to January. Therefore his exit did not come as a great surprise, as manager Nigel Adkins looked to make space to reinforce his squad.
The 26-year-old immediately came into the fold at Ipswich, scoring on his first start in the 1-0 win over Championship relegation rivals Rotherham United at Portman Road.
With his contract at Hull expiring in the summer, a permanent move to Portman Road could be on the cards for Keane, and it is a deal that would make sense for all involved.
The Tractor Boys are currently bottom of the Championship table, seven points from safety.
