The striker, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Portman Road, has finally signed a one-year deal with Ipswich after overcoming an injury which hampered his pre-season plans.
Both Ipswich and Hull fans feel he could be the difference in the League One promotion race. Here is a selection of the best comments from both sets of supporters.

Class if he can get fit. Just the kind of striker we need.— Barney Booth (@barney_booth) August 20, 2019
Great signing if he stays fit. Even if we get 25 games out of him he could be the difference between top two and playoffs— Daniel Siggers (@Siggers16) August 20, 2019
If he stays fit he will be a terrific signing— Gary Ling (@gazgalgary) August 20, 2019

Keane has top level experience having previously featured for Manchester United and he undoubtedly has the ability to play a big role in League One this season.
The 26-year-old scored three goals in 11 games for Ipswich last season. But his game isn’t just about goals, with the striker also comfortable in possession and able to regularly link up with his teammates.
Question marks will be there over this fitness. However, speaking to reporters, Keane claims he no longer has any issues with his hamstring after a successful operation over the summer.
“My fitness is good. I had an op at the end of last season which was a three-month rehab and I got through that. I feel good. There are no issues with my hamstring,” Keane told East Anglian Daily Times.
Keane was one of several players released by Hull this summer as the Tigers looked to cut the wage bill. He suffered an injury-plagued spell at the KCOM Stadium, and now he will be looking to make up for lost time at Ipswich.
