Iron Make Move For Keogh

Last updated : 04 February 2005 By Kevin Markey
The Irish youngster spent three months on loan with Scunthorpe earlier in the season and impressed Iron manager Brian Laws.

Keogh is currently in the middle of another loan spell with Bury and has scored twice in three games for the League Two side.

The 18-year-old has been told he can leave Elland Road on a permanent basis.

Laws told the Scunthorpe Telegraph: "I can confirm that we have agreed a fee with Leeds United for Andy Keogh and we will be holding negotiations with the player over the next few days.

"But I don't envisage the deal being completed before Saturday's match simply because he is away on an international call-up over the weekend.

"We don't want to rush anything either, we have had a bid accepted and we will now take it from there.

"Nothing is guaranteed yet, but Leeds have confirmed in writing that they have accepted the financial package we offered."
