Wolves striker Andy Keogh has confirmed he would like to sign a permanent deal with Leeds when his loan spell expires next month.

The Republic of Ireland international is due to return to Wolves on January 2 after arriving back at Leeds for a second spell in August.

The 25-year-old told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "I love the club and, in an ideal world, I'd like to stay. My agent will start speaking to them soon, and to Wolves, and we'll just go from there."

He added: "I'll listen to what they've got to say. Leeds are a great club. It's the first club I signed for as a youngster and holds a place in my heart. We've also got a really good chance of going up."

Keogh, who has scored twice in 21 appearances for Leeds this season, first arrived at the club as a 16-year-old in 2003, but failed to force his way into the first-team and moved on to Scunthorpe in 2005.

Wolves paid an initial £600,000, plus add-ons to take Keogh to Molineux in 2007 and he has also had loan spells at Bury, Cardiff and Bristol City.
