keogh available on permanant deal

Wolves striker Andy Keogh would like to make a permanent move to Leeds United when his current loan ends.

Keogh, who has fallen down the pecking order with Premier League Wolves, is due to return to Molineux at the beginning of January.

But the 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international appears settled at Leeds, having made 21 appearances, scoring twice, since signing on loan in August.

"I love the club and, in an ideal world, I'd like to stay," said Keogh.

"My agent will start speaking to them soon, and to Wolves, and we'll just go from there," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Keogh has found his chances at Wolves limited since their promotion to the Premier League, having also had loan spells with Cardiff City and Bristol City.

We've got a really good chance of going up
On-loan Leeds striker Andy Keogh
But, should he leave Wolves permanently, Keogh, who first joined Leeds at 16 before leaving for Scunthorpe in 2005, says his preferred destination would be Elland Road.

"I'll listen to what they have got to say," he said. "Leeds are a great club.

"It's the first club I signed for as a youngster and holds a place in my heart.

"I'm really enjoying my time here and it's a great dressing room. We've also got a really good chance of going up."

He is a hard worker but he is not a goal scorer, he is a heskey style player, it's fair enough saying he brings other players into the game but he plays as a striker and I'd rather see the strikers scoring goals and leave the bring players into the game to the midfielder, Luciano was that sort of player when we had beckford but Luciano got more goals, if we sign a striker then we should be looking for him to get goals, but that is just my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Keogh is a hard worker but not what we need at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

Once sommas back well have lots of choice up front and he brings something different sign him up SG

Agree0 Disagree0

Unless he's willing to convert to midfield his hard work would go to nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we are looking to bring in a striker then why not look at bringing Beckford back. He can't get a game at Leiceseter(although I can't see why) and it didn't work for him at Everton. If you look at his record here at Leeds I would be in no doubt that he would be an instant success and the type of forward we need right now, not the likes of Keough. We already have a similiar player in Becchio, unless the Middlesborough rumours are true in which case flog him to them and keep Keough!

Leeds won't make an attemp for Andrew driver, David templeton is the man in SG sights

Templeton looks like hes got alot of quality... fast tricky and got goals up his sleeve surely would be a good buy if we were to buy this guy ! JD

Agree0 Disagree0

Templeton would fit into Leeds style of play brilliantly and I think he would excel at Leeds and be a massive player to help us push to the prem, I'd absolutely love him to come to Leeds and it could be possible with the financial trouble hearts are in

Agree0 Disagree0

Only if bates has 15 million to spend. Won't accept anything less than that

apparantly kebe is a massive doubt today, good start but they still have mcanuff who will tear connelly a new one.

Believable11 Unbelievable8

If we can get the first goal then mcanuff will turn to utter poo

Agree0 Disagree0

Prob right, kebe is def not playing, their wingers are terrible at tracking back, think we can do them

Agree0 Disagree0

What is it with the fans and Connelly. He is a solid right back who generally puts in a decent shift. The jury must be still out on White at left back. Showed shortcomings again today. Just because he is young and from Leeds doesn't make him a star. He still has something to prove at this level. He is probably better playing wide left with Pugh at left back but again that needs to be proved.

Agree0 Disagree0
