Leeds to make Keogh move permanent

Leeds United could make Andy Keogh’s loan spell permanent when the January transfer window opens.

The Irish international is on the books of Wolves but is currently on loan with Championship side Leeds and has impressed since making the move.

The 25 year old, who began his career with Leeds before being sold to Scunthorpe as an 18 year old in 2005, has scored two goals in 10 games so far, his most recent effort helping his side to a 3-2 win over Peterborough.

Keogh, who can out wide or up front, has been with Wolves since 2007 but has failed to the make the breakthrough spending time on loan with Cardiff, Bristol City and now Leeds.

Speaking to the Yorkshire evening post Leeds manager Simon Grayson said “it’s a possibility,”

“That would really be down to Mick McCarthy and Wolves, depending on what they want to do with him.

“Mick wanted to get him out on loan to give him some games and get him in the shop window but he might look at what Andy’s done here and think ‘we’ll have him back in January’.

“The better he does for us the more it’s something we’d like to consider but it’s probably too early to think about that yet.

“He’s got better and sharper and, as I’ve said before, he’s doing something right because he’s keeping (Luciano) Becchio out of the team.

“The moves he’s had in the past prove what a capable player he is, and he and Ross McCormack seem to have a great understanding.”
