Former Tottenham Striker Could Make English Football Return Thanks to Old Manager
Former Tottenham striker Robbie Keane could be set for a return to English football in the form of reuniting with his old manager Harry Redknapp at Birmingham City.
The 36-year-old has been out of the game since late 2016 after leaving LA Galaxy upon the expiry of his contract, but didn't announce his retirement.
The Irishman spent six seasons in the States, and before that played for a host of Premier League clubs in what has been a lengthy career.
He could now be about to return to the English game, with Redknapp keen to link back up with the man he re-signed for Spurs in 2009.
He told the Mirror: "Robbie is a player you would love to have around your football club. Any football club with Robbie Keane in is a better football club.
"He can bring an awful lot to any club. At the moment I haven’t done anything but it’s not an impossibility."
Redknapp is after at least five new players this summer, and was also credited with interest in John Terry, who eventually decided to sign for Aston Villa.
