Keane to cross the pond?

Tottenham striker Robbie Keane has been linked with a shock move to LA Galaxy.

The Irish international has been the subject of much speculation this summer having been deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane, with Bolton, Blackburn and Leicester all rumoured to have shown an interest in the 31-year-old.

In a statement released on Saturday, a spokesman for LA Galaxy said: “We are always looking to improve our squad and have contacted or been contacted by a host of players during the current transfer window.

“As soon as we have something confirmed in regards to any potential player acquisitions we will be sure to alert everyone.”

The much-travelled Keane has enjoyed a stellar career so far, enjoying spells at Wolves, Coventry, Inter Milan, Leeds and Liverpool, as well as becoming the Republic of Ireland’s leading goalscorer with 53 goals in 108 appearances.
