Some overnight admin for you all. Will Keane, now 23 years old, has once again left Manchester United to seek football elsewhere. However, this time he's made a permanent move away, and will rejoin Mike Phelan at Hull City, where he can at least be fairly certain he'll get a game.

Keane was at one time extremely highly-rated by United's youth-watchers, and was the focal point of the 2011 FA Youth Cup winning team, a side that also included Jesse Lingard, Sam Johnstone, Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba. But a serious knee injury stalled his development and last season he managed to injure himself in the process of hitting the post, which is quite the trick if you can manage it.

Though he hasn't exactly been prolific during his loan spells at Wigan, QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End, we can assume that Phelan knows what he's getting and thinks he can be useful. Best of luck to him.
