Robbie Keane has this afternoon completed his return Tottenham after passing a medical and agreeing terms with the North London club. The Republic of Ireland international was given permission by Liverpool to travel down to London to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical earlier today and now the player has officially signed for Spurs.
Since leaving White Hart Lane last July, Keane, 28, has scored just 7 goals for Liverpool and has, in turn, fallen out of favour with Reds boss Rafa Benitez. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp admitted just a few weeks ago that he would love to bring Keane back to the club, however at the time, Redknapp claimed it wasn't an option.
Thankfully for him, that was not the case and Keane is once again a Tottenham player. It is thought that Spurs and Liverpool agreed a fee of around £16 million after several hours of negotiations this afternoon. I am thrilled to see Keane going back to Spurs. There is no doubt that this is the right move for all parties because there is no point having a player of Keane's quality sitting on the bench every weekend.
