No Way Newcastle Still Interested In Robbie Keane


Robbie Keane would have been a good loan signing for Newcastle last season, but there can be no way Newcastle are still interested in the Ireland captain.

Robbie Keane – surely no interest from Newcastle?

The Irishman spent this year on loan at West Ham, but he was out so much, that he did little to help the east London club’s survival efforts,  and they were relegated.

There seems no way that the Hammers will be able to afford Robbie in the second division, and  if anything they will need to sell their best players like Scotty Parker, Robert Green and Carlton Cole.

But it remains to be seen what new manager Sam Allardyce thinks about Robbie, but we’d be surprised if  big Sam  would be interested in keeping him at the Hammers.

Keane is not wanted by Tottenham, and he’s played very little football over the last season or two, since he couldn’t get his game at White Hart Lane.

This is what Robbie, who turns 31 next month, said today:

“I’ve only got one year left there so I am sure Spurs will probably want to do business on me,”

“For me it is about enjoying my football and playing as much as I can.”

The news is that Fulham are interested in Robbie, and he has stated many times before his preference is to remain in London, where his family and friends are.

And even when he was on loan at Celtic last year, he spent a lot of his time in London traveling north and south during the loan spell.

Robbie may also be past his best, and certainly for West Ham, he did not look outstanding in his 9 appearances and two goals.

With his preference to remain in London, and with his astronomical wages, there’s just no way Newcastle will still be interested in this player.

What do you think?

    Hey guys :)))

    New to this Blog! I am exited of the prospects for next season as we have had a mixed one this year. Sackign Houghton was criminal :-/ I ask myself why cant some I dunno Arab Zillionaire buy US instead of some M. City or Aston Villa or whatever, so that we loose Ashley I cant stand looking at him 🙁

    Hope we get some new quality players the news about the Lille pair is superb so is Barbatov.

    I second that motion

    lol it just makes me laugh that the media know so little about NUFC and Ashley that they link us with old crap like Keane.

    They must think of us as a haven for “big names” at the end of their careers ready to pay big money on fees and wages for rubbish lol

    Best is better than Keane is now.

    To be fair like, Sturridge would be my first choice for striker ahead of Gamiero. Already proven he can do it in the prem and has already said he wants first team football so should be moving.

    As Mo said, if Gamiero is set on playing in Spain, if he ended up coming here it would be solely for monetary reasons.
