WEST HAM have joined the £5m race for Spurs misfit Robbie Keane.

The Republic of Ireland striker has been told he can leave next month.

Aston Villa, Wolves and Celtic are also interested in the 30-year-old.

The Hammers’ 13-goal haul this season is the second worst record in the top flight.

This move may well make sense for Robbie Keane who appears to have little in the way of a future at White Hart Lane. A move from north to east London may help to resurrect the Irish international’s career and could in turn give Avram Grant the added goalscoring boost he needs in order to help guide his side away from the drop.

Keane has managed just two Premier League starts this season but the 30 year old has a goalscoring pedigree having netted 205 goals in an illustrious career. West Ham could do with a prolific marksman seeing as the likes of Victor Obinna, Carlton Cole and Frederic Piquionne are struggling to find the back of the net.
