Bottom club Ipswich Town have signed striker Will Keane on loan from Championship rivals Hull City until the end of the season.

The former Manchester United academy product is already Town's second new arrival of the transfer window following the loan capture of Leicester City left-back Callum Elder.

Keane only scored one goal for Hull after joining them in a reported £1 million deal from United in 2016.

The 25-year-old is eligible to make his debut in Saturday's FA Cup tie at Accrington Stanley.

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

“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.

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