United agree Keogh loan deal

Leeds have signed Ireland striker Andy Keogh on loan from Wolves until January.

The move for the 25-year-old Irishman, who began his career at Elland Road as a trainee, could be made permanent at the turn of the year.

Boss Simon Grayson told the club's official website: "Andy will strengthen our striking options. He's got plenty of experience, having played a lot at this level and in the Premier League."

He added: "He's also returning to the club where he started his career so he knows what it's like here and understands the place."

Keogh failed to make a senior appearance during his time at Leeds and joined Scunthorpe for £50,000 early in 2005 following an initial loan spell.

He scored 23 goals in 96 appearances for the Iron before joining Wolves for £600,000 in January 2007 and spent the first half of last season on loan at Cardiff and the second half at Bristol City.
