Will Keane reacts after joining Ipswich Town from Hull City

Will Keane admits joining Ipswich Town on loan from Hull City was ‘an easy decision to make’.

The striker completed the switch to Portman Road on Friday morning, penning a loan deal until the end of the season after struggling for game time at the KCOM Stadium.

Keane made just eight league appearances for the Tigers this season, his last coming last weekend in the 2-0 victory over Leeds United, his one and only Championship start this season to date.

As such, as the former Manchester United man hunts for regular action, he claims he did not need to think twice before joining the Championship strugglers, who currently prop up the division.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to come here and hopefully play some games and contribute to the team,” Keane told the club website.

“I spoke to the manager a couple of days ago and it was an easy decision for me.

“Despite the position in the league, I know it’s a great club. I know about the manager. I have played at the stadium. I’ve seen the training ground. The foundations are in place for Ipswich to be a top Championship club at least.”

Although the season has just passed the half way stage, Ipswich are already staring down the barrel of relegation. The Tractor Boys sit ten points adrift of safety at present having picked up just two wins and 15 points so far.

However, fresh from being part of a Hull side that has recently climbed out of the bottom three and up to within touching distance of the top half of the table following a run of five straight wins, Keane is confident Ipswich can pull themselves out of trouble.

“I want to do everything I can for the cause here and score a few goals and help push the team up the league,” he added.

“I have seen it happen recently at Hull. You put a few results together and you can catapult up the league. It’s doable.

“They were down at the bottom not so long ago but got a couple of wins and before you know it that was four or five wins and the confidence starts to come and you build momentum.

“I have spoken to some of the lads here and they have said the performances have been good but the luck has gone against us. Hopefully that will change as well.”
