West Ham could hijack Birmingham’s move for Tottenham striker Robbie Keane, skysports.com understands.
Birmingham are in pole position to sign Keane after agreeing a fee in the region of £6million with Spurs for the Republic of Irelandinternational.
However, West Ham are refusing to give up their pursuit of Keane after seeing a loan bid rejected by Spurs with Harry Redknapp preferring a permanent deal for the former Wolves and Liverpool man.
West Ham are now thought to be ready to make a permanent offer for Keane as they look to win the race for the striker’s services
Keane is thought to be reluctant to leave London and West Ham are hoping this could boost their chances of luring the 30-year-old to Upton Park.
Despite doubts over Avram Grant’s future at West Ham, the club are ready to push forward with a move for Keane with managerial target Martin O’Neill thought to be keen on bringing in the forward if he does take charge. (Sky Sports)
Could Robbie Keane be swayed to opt for East London over a move to join Birmingham City? Could talk of the potential arrival of Martin O’Neill at Upton Park help persuade the Tottenham striker to become a Hammer? The 30 year old Irish international is it seems a wanted man and that is no surprise given we are talking about one of the most consistent strikers in recent Premier League history.
