ROBBIE Keane will rejoin Tottenham Hotspurs today after their �15 bid for the striker was accepted by Liverpool on Sunday night.

The Irishman's return to White Hart Lane will complete one of the most spectacular deals of the transfer window, with Spurs making a �5.3m profit on the deal.

Just six months after Keane's �20.3m move north, the striker was left out of Liverpool's squad entirely for the 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday.

It is believed that Keane's �90,000 a week salary was proving to be problematic but now a solution has been found.
