Stuart Antony Alan O'Keefe (born 4 March 1991) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for English League One side Milton Keynes Dons, on loan from Championship side Cardiff City.
He began his career with Ipswich Town, spending six years in the club's youth academy system, but was released as a teenager without making an appearance for the first-team. Following his release, O'Keefe joined the academy at Southend United, making his professional debut for the club the following year in 2008, during a Football League One match, at the age of 17. In 2010, he completed a move to Football League Championship side Crystal Palace on a free transfer and went on to make over 50 appearances in all competitions for the club during a five-year spell, helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League via the 2013 Football League Championship play-off Final, also spending a brief period on loan at Blackpool in late 2014. In January 2015, he moved to Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee.Close
