Keogh backed to star at Leeds

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has backed Andy Keogh to make a positive impact back at Leeds.

Keogh (25) who began his career at Elland Road as a trainee, yesterday joined on loan from Wolves until January and went straight into the squad for last night's home clash with Hull.

McCarthy believes a familiar environment will bring out the best in the Ireland international, who left Elland Road for Scunthorpe for £50,000 in February 2005 after playing just one game for Leeds.

McCarthy said: "Andy has done terrifically well for me and I think he'll do well for them. He's a good Championship player. I'm delighted for him because he's gone to a great club."

•Norwich have signed 20-year-old defender Daniel Ayala from Liverpool on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
