Birmingham have negotiated a fee for Robbie Keane with Spurs, to take him to St. Andrews in a permanent deal.
Robbie Keane – Newcastle would be daft to pay £7M for this player
And Harry Redknapp was on Sky Sports last night and Harry being Harry – he let it be known the fee agreed with Birmingham was a a massive £7M.
Robbie is 30 years old and simply not worth £7M, and if that’s the fee on his head, then we hope Newcastle are not interested,
And Redknapp also said there was no way Robbie would leave on loan, but it’s now up to the player whether he accepts the Birmingham deal.
We think he will want to wait to see if bigger clubs than Birmingham come in for him – but at £7M we have to think there’s just no way Newcastle will be interested in the Ireland captain.
Oh yes – one thing – when was the last time Robbie scored a hat-trick in the Premier League? 😀
Newcastle have three players who have done that this season in Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan and last night Premier League debutant Leon Best, who was making his first start in England’s top league.
That has to be a record by Best – which will be hard to equal – scoring a hat-trick on your very first PL start, and only second appearance ever in the Premier League.
What a great performance from the 24 year-old, and when he left the field to a tremendous ovation last night, he must have thought he was dreaming!
