Is Robbie Keane going back to his roots at Wolves?

Striker may make cut-price move next month


Wolves are reportedly lining up a deal to bring arm-flapping former trainee Robbie Keane back to Molineux over a decade after he originally left the club.

The nomadic Irishman has since rocked up at 1001 different clubs (well, 6), including Coventry, Inter, Leeds and an infamous stopover at Liverpool; and it appears Keane will have to pack his bags once more this January, with Harry Redknapp recently confirming he’s surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.

According to Mirror Football, Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy has been alerted to the 30-year-old’s availability, along with Aston Villa and Fulham.

McCarthy apparently tried to sign the Keane on loan in the last winter window, even agreeing to match £60,000+ wages. With the striker still in need of first team football, Wolves are prepared to meet Spurs’ £6m valuation - which is just half of what the north London club paid Liverpool two years ago.

Exciting prospect, Wolves fans? And are there any Spurs fans that would be sad to see Robbie leave?

    Well at least he’ll get the opportunity to play for the club he cheered for as a boy

    £6m, in today’s market – that would be a bargain. Not only would it give a much needed morale boost to the fans, but Keane is far from past it – I reckon he could be the catalyst for a U-turn to our season.

    £6m for a 30-year old that you’ll have to pay £60K p/w to in the Championship? It would make sense as a loan, but not as a buy.
