Derby County

Former Huddersfield Town, Derby County and Ipswich Town man to become a free agent as release confirmed



After signing a short-term contract in February, the seasoned defender played 14 games for Forest Green as they were unable to avert relegation from League Two.

He is scheduled to leave and become a free agent as his contract has not been extended past the summer. “We would like to thank all of the players for their hard effort, with special mention to Dom Bernard and Matty Stevens, who helped the club gain promotion to League One in 2021/2022,” Forest Green stated in a statement.

Keogh is an experienced EFL player who has participated in all three EFL lower divisions and spent two stints in Yorkshire. In 2007, he spent time on loan with Huddersfield, and he announced his return to the team for the 2020–21 season.

The former Ireland international has also played for teams like Suffolk Town, Derby County, and Bristol City. Alongside him, who moved from Huddersfield to Forest Green in 2022, is another former Terrier named Reece Brown.

After the regular League One, League Two, and National League seasons conclude, retained lists are being released across the nation. A number of well-known players, such as former Huddersfield midfielder Adam Clayton, have become free agents.

After the regular Championship season concludes in the upcoming weeks, Huddersfield’s retained list will probably be made public. Although Andre Breitenreiter’s team will play Ipswich Town to close the season, they have already been mathematically demoted to League One.
