The 23-year old is expected to leave the club since the arrival of Jose Mourinho as he is keen to move away from Old Trafford in search of first-team football.
Will Keane is not in Mourinho’s plans as the manager already signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and have fallen further down in the pecking order with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Wayne Rooney all ahead of him.
He came through Manchester United academy and has had loan spells at Wigan, QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End earlier. He became third Hull City signing of the busy day as the club are making some key additions as the deadline day looms.
Will Keane told the Hull website: “I’m delighted to move here.
“It’s a fresh start and a new challenge for me, so I’m really looking forward to getting things underway.”
The young striker is one of the few youngsters who have left the club on a permanent basis from Manchester United this season due to the arrival of Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese manager is not famous for developing home-grown talent as he often loans the players out before making a call on their future after the loan spell. Earlier Donald Love and Paddy McNair have also left for Sunderland on a permanent move while many other talents were sent on loan.
