Will Keane return to Latics
Will Keane was released by Ipswich this summer after scoring nine goals in 28 starts and 13 substitute appearances during an 18-month stay.
After training with Latics during pre-season, featuring in a friendly wins against Bolton and Bradford, he has now penned a short-term deal at the DW Stadium until January.
“I’m really pleased to be here. I’m excited about the games coming up, to be amongst the squad and give my best,” he said.
“I came training at the back end of August and got a couple of pre-season games. Leam (Richardson) was great with me at the time.
“It’s taken a bit longer than I would have liked, but I’m really happy to be back here now.
“In pre-season it was only possible for the club to offer me a shorter-term contract, which didn’t work for me at the time, but the administrators have now given the green light for me to sign a slightly longer-term contract.
“It’s only until January, but it’s a good chance for me to play a lot of games over the coming months and build from there.”
Keane, who has been handed the No.10 shirt, continued: “We’re coming up to mid-October now, so I was really eager to get back training here and be with the squad.
“Last year I was part of Ipswich’s squad in League One which was cancelled in March, so it’s been a while since I’ve played competitive football.
“Physically I’m feeling really good. I played in the two games here against Bolton and Bradford, it was a bit frustrating that I couldn’t then build on that here, but I trained at another club and kept on top of my fitness to make sure I’m ready to go.”
