The striker has been in Suffolk to tie up the loose ends of a loan deal which will run until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old’s career at Hull has been hit by injuries which have limited him to just 26 appearances in two-and-a-half years.

“Will is down at Ipswich, he’s not signed just yet,” Adkins said at his press conference this morning. “It’s been a busy couple of days and we’re trying to be active.

“There is a process and I would imagine that at some point today Keane will sign on loan at Ipswich.

“It’s an opportunity to freshen things up a bit and it’s important for him to play regular football but likewise maybe his wages coming off the wage bill, maybe we can utilise that.”

Keane is out of contract at the end of the season.
