Hull City are open to offers for striker Will Keane in January, according to Hull Live.

The 25-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and the Tigers will let him leave the club if the right offer comes in.

Keane has had his injury problems during his time at the KCOM Stadium and has fallen down the pecking order in this campaign behind Fraizer Campbell, Chris Martin and Nouha Dicko.

The Stockport-born forward joined Hull in August 2016 from Manchester United for a fee of £1 million on a three-year contract. The Tigers do have the option to extend it by a further year but this is unlikely. He has made just 22 appearances since his move, scoring once.

Keane started his career at Manchester United and rose through their youth ranks. He made his first-team debut for the Red Devils in a December 2011 fixture against Blackburn Rovers. He went onto play twice more for their senior side.

The 6ft 2inc striker was then loaned out to Wigan Athletic, QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End to gain some first-team experience in the Championship.

Hull City then swooped to sign him when Mike Phelan, who knew Keane well from their time at Manchester United together, to bolster his attacking options in the Premier League.

Keane obviously has promise but he has been so unlucky with injuries. Perhaps a move to a League One side would help him get his career back on track in the January transfer window.
