Keogh Returns On Loan To Leeds
Leeds United have signed Wolves striker Andy Keogh on loan until January. The 25-year-old started his career at Elland Road as a trainee and has been drafted in to plug the gap in Simon Grayson’s squad left by injuries to Luciano Becchio, Davide Somma and Billy Paynter. Keogh was at Thorp Arch today to complete the signing in time to face Hull City tomorrow night. Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey confirmed Leeds’ interest in the striker. He said: “We are of the view that we would prefer a sale for his sake but Leeds need some help more than anything, so this loan is a good arrangement for everyone.” Grayson told the club’s official website: “Andy will strengthen our striking options. He’s got plenty of experience, having played a lot at this level and in the Premier League. “He’s also returning to the club where he started his career so he knows what it’s like here and understands the place.” Keogh failed to make a senior appearance during his time at Leeds and joined Scunthorpe for £50,000 early in 2005 following an initial loan spell. He scored 23 goals in 96 appearances for the Iron before joining Wolves for £600,000 in January 2007. He spent the first half of last season on loan at Cardiff and the second half at Bristol City.
