Newcastle Keane to get Robbie

Newcastle Keane to get Robbie

Newcastle United have lodged an enquiry into the availability of out-of-favour Liverpool frontman Robbie Keane. The Republic of Ireland International has had a dismal time since his celebrated £20 million move from Tottenham Hotspurs in the summer, and the Toon are interested to give him a way out of his Anfield nightmare.

The 28-year-old was left out of Rafa Benitez's side for last week's FA Cup clash against Everton, and it is understood that that may spell the end to Keane's tenure at the Kop-End.

Liverpool are keen to recoup the £20 million they paid Spurs, but with no suitors matching that valuation, and Keane himself disgruntled, it is the best policy for both parties to agree a short-term loan deal for the former-Coventry City and Leeds man.

Newcastle United are understood to be the club most interested in Keane's services, and with the injury crisis on Tyneside, Magpies gaffer Joe Kinnear sees the move as beneficial for the club and player alike.

Would be a good signing but without being too miserable, this just will not happen.

Sort of signing we'd have made a few seasons ago, but no one like him will come to us whilst there is so much unrest and uncertainty.

Would be looking at a bigger (physically) striker to complement either Owen or Martins in an ideal world. That said, beggars can't be choosers.
