Keane delighted with Owls switch

22 January 2015

New recruit Will Keane has spoken of his delight having joined Wednesday on loan for the rest of the season.

The Manchester United striker linked up with the Owls on Thursday and is itching to get started at Hillsborough.

Keane told “We don’t have a game on Saturday but we play Birmingham on Tuesday so that’s not long to wait.

“I’m really looking forward to it. Sheffield Wednesday contacted United and it appealed to me straight away because this is a massive club with a great history.

“I’m sitting here in the ground now looking around and it’s a huge place. I just want to come here and help do my bit for the team and hopefully get some game time and score some goals.”

On the Old Trafford books since the age of ten, Keane has picked up many positive traits having learned from some of the leading talents in the game.

And he credits Champions League winner and former United star Ole Gunnar Solskaer in particular for aiding his development.

Keane added: “I did a lot of work with Ole, who took the strikers at United.

“His record in front of goal was right up there on the biggest stage and you can’t help but learn from players like that.

“I just want to play now and do myself justice. I was at Hillsborough whilst on loan with Wigan and QPR so I know the potential of the club.

“I want to make the most of this opportunity and give it my all for Sheffield Wednesday.”
