Some supporters from Ipswich Town and Hull City have taken to Twitter to comment on confirmation of Will Keane’s free transfer move to Ipswich.

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.

 

The Tractor Boys are looking to make an immediate return to the Championship following their relegation from League One and Keane has the potential to be a big player for the club this season.

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.

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.
