Hull suffer Will Keane injury blow

15 November 2016, 20:32

London - Striker Will Keane will miss the rest of the season because of a serious knee injury, adding to the problems of English Premier League strugglers Hull City.

The 23-year-old, who joined from Manchester United in August having spent most of his professional career on loan to other clubs, is due to undergo surgery on his damaged knee ligaments on Tuesday.

Some reports suggest Keane, who won England caps at every age level including Under-21, could be sidelined for up to a year.

Manager Mike Phelan, who knew Keane from his time as assistant manager at United, said it was a big blow for Hull, who are third from bottom in the Premier League and have been dogged by injuries.

"Everybody at the club wishes Will well for a full recovery ahead of what is going to be a long road back to action," said Phelan.

"To lose a player of Will's quality and potential for such a long period of time is a big blow, but I'm sure his determination and mindset will see him through the tough journey ahead."

Hull are already without Uruguayan international striker Abel Hernandez, who will be out for another three weeks with a groin problem.
