ROY Keane has spoken to Spurs boss Harry Redknapp about taking Giovanni Dos Santos on loan again.

The Blues boss is hopeful that The Mexican's experience at Portman Road at the end of last season will help convince Spurs to let him come again, and other Premier League bosses to loan out players to Ipswich.

Keane said: “I spoke to Harry Redknapp about Gio when he was here last year.

“They know they get looked after and they know they are coming to a real club and a manager that will make sure that they will train properly and be on time. That hopefully helps in our dealing with any Premier League teams.”

A raft of clubs in the top flight here and abroad are interested in taking Dos Santos, with Espanyol and Deportiva La Coruna are linked to trying to buy him.
