TOTTENHAM have re-signed striker Robbie Keane from Liverpool - six months after he left the club for �20.3m.
No transfer fee has been announced but it is understood that Spurs made a cash-only offer in the region of �15m.
“It was a difficult decision to make to leave Tottenham in the summer,” said the 28-year-old.
“It proved not to be the right move for me. I know some Spurs fans will feel I let them down... but I can assure them I'll be giving my all.”

He added: “This club has terrific fans and I want to repay them for all their support. We've got to get on and fight our way up that league table.”
Keane joined Liverpool from Spurs in July for �20.3m but failed to establish himself in manager Rafael Benitez's first-team. The Republic of Ireland captain managed only five goals in 19 appearances for the club he supported as a boy.

“We never wanted Robbie to leave in the summer, we acknowledged the six years dedicated service he gave this club and reluctantly let him go,” said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. “I am delighted that he has chosen to return to us.”
Keane made 254 appearances for Spurs during his first spell between August 2002 and July 2008, during which time he scored 107 goals.
He becomes the third player manager Harry Redknapp has brought back to White Hart Lane this month, following fellow striker Jermain Defoe's return from Portsmouth and defender Pascal Chimbonda's transfer from Sunderland.
