The rumours are gathering momentum that Aston Villa are set to make their move in a £6 million deal for Tottenham and Ireland striker Robbie Keane.
Keane wants out of Tottenham after falling down the pecking order to 4th choice striker at the club and with his wages of £60,000 a week Spurs are desperate to offload. Robbie accepts he will take a pay cut when he moves on.
Villa have been looking at Keane since the summer but a deal never materialized after Martin O’neill left the club. Gerard Houllier however has reignited his interest in Keane and the rumours are spreading that Villa are set to make an offer anytime soon as they fear they may miss out because of the other clubs sniffing around.
Tottenham will look to invest the money they make on Keane in their own new signings in January.
