Manchester United striker Will Keane believes previous loan spells at Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers have stood him in good stead as he adjusts to life at Sheffield Wednesday.

Keane joined Wednesday on a season-long loan from Man United in January and has scored three goals in six appearances so far at Hillsborough.

However, the Owls lost 2-1 at home to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Jordan Rhodes and Adam Henley.

Keane has enjoyed his time at Wednesday and said his spells at Wigan and QPR have prepared him well for the Championship.

Speaking about his spell at Wednesday, Keane said: ”I think I’ve taken to it quite well. I had the experience of being on loan last year so I’m used to the physicality of it. It’s a tough league to play in.

“But the players around me have helped me a lot and I think the two recent wins have helped with our confidence and all the lads have got a bit of belief.

“We’ve just got to keep pushing on. We were unlucky against Blackburn. We know we have to do better, but I’m really enjoying it.”

Keane regularly got on the scoresheet for Man United’s U21s prior to a cruciate ligament injury back in 2012.

There were concerns that he had suffered the injury again earlier this year but thankfully Keane was given the all clear and he has gone on to flourish at Wednesday. He will be looking to push on in order to try and get in Louis van Gaal’s first-team squad next season.
