Richard Keogh is back in the Championship after completing a move to Hudddersfield Town from MK Dons.

The 26-times capped Republic of Ireland international came to the League One Dons as a free agent in the summer.

In October 2019, Keogh had his contract terminated by Derby County having been involved in a car crash which resulted in former team-mates Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett being convicted of drink-driving.

Keogh suffered a serious knee injury during the incident and was dismissed for gross misconduct.

The 34-year-old got his playing career back on track at the Dons and has now earned a move to Huddersfield, with their head coach Carlos Corberan hopeful his presence can help his 14th-placed side rise up the table.

"Richard is a player with an amazing background and a lot of experience in the Championship," he said.

"He has regularly played over 4,000 minutes per season at his previous clubs, and you need the combination of his experience alongside our young players to create a competitive team.

"The competitive character he has, and the respect he has for his job, are very important values within our group.

"He is a good defender and he can also help us to play out from the back. His ability to play on the left and right of central defence is something we need in the team too."

MK Dons have replaced Keogh with another Irishman.

On Monday, Warren O'Hora made a permanent move to the club from Brighton and Hove Albion after a successful loan spell.

The 21-year-old Republic of Ireland underage international has spent the first half of this campaign with the Dons, making 17 appearances and really shining at centre-half.
