Manchester United's Will Keane moves to Preston North End on loan

Manchester United striker Will Keane joins newly-promoted Championship side Preston North End on a season-long loan.

Manchester United striker Will Keane has joined newly-promoted Championship side Preston North End on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old moves back to the second tier after spending the second half of last season with Sheffield Wednesday.

The forward, who has just one senior United appearance to his name, scored three goals in 13 appearances for the Owls.

Preston boss Simon Grayson told the club website: "We have pulled off a bit of a coup beating several other Championship clubs to him and I do feel he is going to be a major asset to our squad."

Keane explained that he was hoping to emulate other United players that had been sent to Deepdale.

"The likes of David Beckham and Danny Welbeck have been here and they all did well and benefited from the experience, so that is something I can hopefully come here and take from it," he said.

Keane will wear the number nine shirt for Preston next season.
