Keane In Blow-Up With Redknapp – On His Way To Newcastle?

Robbie Keane has probably moved closer to leaving the Tottenham club in January,  after it has been revealed that he had a dressing room row with his manager Harry Redknapp.

Robbie Keane – on loan to Newcastle in January?

But the news is old in that the row occurred after the 1-0 loss at West Ham back on September 25th, when Robbie came on as substitute for Aaron Lennon after 66 minutes,  and had a couple of chances he didn’t put away.

Harry was not happy after the game, and in the dressing room is said to have confronted the Irish striker over the two chances he missed.

A source who was there said:

“It was pretty heated in the dressing room.”

But we’re sure that kind of thing happens all the time after a defeat,  when everybody is frustrated at the result, but Robbie is still not getting too much playing time at the London club, and that’s with Jermaine Defoe still out injured with his ankle injury.

There’s a chance Newcastle could take the player on loan in January, after their attempt to get him on a season long loan deal in late August failed at the last minute. And we’re sure Celtic would take him again on loan too, but the class of football north of the border is hardly tat standard of  play in England’s top division.

But it seems clear Robbie will be leaving the Tottenham club and soon, if he ever wants to play regularly again in the Premier League.

It’s a waste of his talent to be sitting on the subs bench for every game.

Comments welcome.

    ‘cell by date’, is that a battery next to a calender?

    Everyone wants a bit of ‘wolfswinkle’ like.

    I would never compare Owen to van Wolfswinkel!

    Owen was good on his day, but is now definitely over the hill. He also had his best days playing at Liverpool, and mostly playing us at St James.

    Wolfswilkel still has his good days to come, and if we get him he would only get better in the Prem competition, hopefully with us. Liverpool are also sniffing around though.

    Keane would be a no,no, would,nt want him in black,n white.

    the rat eaters are just about bust, they are no threat at the moment, it will get easier for us to buy soon next year we will be debt free, and when Mike Ashley offers cash for players it will be no contest they will be offered 10 million by Liverpool over 10 years or they can have 7 million in the hand, to me it’s an easy one.

    I woudn’t pay £7m for Keano, not now anyways, he’s way past his best & is getting slower by the game, plus we have other strikers that we need to play instead of paying OTT wages for another hasbeen imo..:(

    Yeah ! Robby is showing signs of age, got a lotta mileage, been playing for quite a while.
    There 1s that, plus we all know how tough it is for players trying to get out of a scoring drought and not playing consistently.
    A loan may help us survive, as we know he can bag a few and may be the perfect foil for Carroll, like he was for big Nigel Quinn, when they played to-gether for the Irish side.
    It`s a gamble!

    loan deal for 6 mths should be a great deal

    but if we stick with 4-5-1 , where do we play him?
