Confirmed: Richard Keogh Has Found Himself A New Club

Richard Keogh has reportedly found himself a new club, ten months after he was sacked by Derby County.

The 33-year old was sacked by the club he had represented since 2012 in October of last year after he was involved in a car crash, an incident where teammates Mason Bennett and Tom Lawrence were arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

Keogh also suffered a horrific leg injury in the incident, casting his future in the game into doubt. However, he is now set to join a new team.

According to The Guardian, Richard Keogh is set to sign a contract with MK Dons. It is claimed that multiple sides have shown interest in the defender, including Ipswich Town, but he has decided on a move to Milton Keynes.

The 26-cap Ireland international is hoping to be back in first team action in October as he steps up his recovery from injury. Having suffered the injuries in September of last year, it was initially said that he would be out for 12-15 months.

MK Dons will be amongst the sides looking to produce an improved performance in League One next season, having finished in 18th place in the 19/20 campaign. The club is currently by 34-year old Russel Martin, the former Norwich City and Scotland defender.

It remains to be seen if Keogh has a future at international level, but considering his age it would seem unlikely that he could force his way into Stephen Kenny's plans.

UPDATE: On Friday morning, MK Dons confirmed that they had signed Keogh.
