Hull City have confirmed the signing of Manchester United striker Will Keane for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old was expected to leave Man United after not being included in Jose Mourinho’s plans and he becomes the latest player to leave Old Trafford this summer.

This move could be fantastic for Will and I hope it really works out for him. Back before he suffered a cruel knee ligament injury away on international duty with England, he was on the verge of breaking through into the first-team after some brilliant performances for our U21s.
Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed he was going to be included in the pre-season tour squad for the following season but that injury ruined his chances and the likes of James Wilson and Marcus Rashford breaking through from the academy before him made it almost impossible for him to get another opportunity.
It’s such a shame because I haven’t seen many more prolific strikers than Keane at reserves level and he looked like one hell of a prospect but he’s got a fresh start at another Premier League club in Hull.
We wish Keane the best of luck working underneath former Man United assistant manager Mike Phelan and I hope he can re-find his best form at the club. Good luck Will.
