White Hart Lane pair set for summer exit.
Sunderland boss Steve Bruce will make an £8million summer move for Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane.
Bruce pondered a January move for the 29-year-old Spurs hitman before he chose to join boyhood favourites Celtic on loan.
The Black Cats boss was put off by the £10m fee White Hart Lane boss Harry Redknapp was demanding and the Dubliner’s £65,000-a-week wages.
But now Sunderland have sealed their Premier League status, American owner Ellis Short is prepared to fund another major transfer market raid.

I would be very surprised if Harry turned down the offer from Sunderland, if indeed this source can be classed as reliable, as it seems Redknapp is more than happy to trim his White Hart Lane squad which is looking a little hefty at present.
Robbie has had a good time in Scotland but lets face it anyone can score goals in the SPL but I can see the Irish Pointy Shouty Bloke doing well at the Stadium of Light and could well form a great partnership with Darren Bent who has blossomed at Sunderland.
Alan Hutton never really got going at the club and him becoming a Black Cat would be the best deal all around. As for the fees discussed for the pair we could probably look to get more for the pair but may decide to just take a quick sale to avoid any protracted negotiation that could scupper a deal being done.
