Leeds United manager Simon Grayson is hoping the club can tempt Andy Keogh to extend his spell at Elland Road.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward has scored twice for Leeds since the completion of his loan move, including in the victory over Peterborough United this weekend.

His form has been such that Grayson, who is looking to offload Billy Paynter on loan, wants to keep Keogh at Leeds.

"It's a possibility," Grayson said. "That would really be down to Mick McCarthy and Wolves, depending on what they want to do with him.


"Mick wanted to get him out on loan to give him some games and get him in the shop window but he might look at what Andy's done here and think 'we'll have him back in January'.

"The better he does for us the more it's something we'd like to consider but it's probably too early to think about that yet.

"He's got better and sharper and, as I've said before, he's doing something right because he's keeping (Luciano) Becchio out of the team."

Such has been Keogh's form, that Leeds are in 5th in the Npower Championship, with a game in hand over the top three.

Leeds play that game in hand against in form Birmingham City on Wednesday, before hosting Cardiff City and then Blackpool in the coming week.
