Will Keane: Missing for the rest of the season

Hull striker Will Keane has been ruled out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

Keane picked up the injury in the Tigers’ 2-1 win over Southampton and was set to undergo surgery on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old, who joined the club from Manchester United in August, is expected to be sidelined for up to 12 months.

Hull boss Mike Phelan said: “Everybody at the club wishes Will well for a full recovery ahead of what is going to be a long road back to action.

“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 mind set will see him through the tough journey ahead.”

Keane’s injury is another major setback for the Tigers, with fellow striker Abel Hernandez also ruled out for at least three more weeks with a groin injury.
