Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has admitted Newcastle have had talks with Tottenham over the possibility of signing Robbie Keane.
It is thought that Newcastle want to also take David Bentley on loan for the rest of the season as Spurs look to sign David Beckham later this week. Bentley would then fall down the pecking order even more and Harry thinks it’s only fair to loan him out until the end of the season.
Speaking about Robbie Keane, Pardew said:
“I can’t say we have not spoken to Spurs because I spoke to them last week and we talked about players, etc, etc.
“They want to do something and we want to bring an offensive player in.”
It’s nothing new to the ears of most fans of Spurs and Newcastle, we knew Newcastle looked at him in the summer but Robbie thought he could prove his worth at Spurs. He now seems to have given up and accepted his future belongs elsewhere and Newcastle are a good prospect for Keane.
