Jol looks to bring Keane to Craven Cottage

New Fulham manager Martin Jol looks set to move for former player Robbie Keane, according to The Sun.

Despite netting his 51st goal for the Republic of Ireland at the weekend, Keane is out of favour at Tottenham Hotspur under manager Harry Redknapp.

Redknapp re-signed the Ireland forward from Liverpool for £12 million in the January 2009 Transfer Window but he has failed to cement a place in the Spurs team since. He has spent much of the past two seasons on loan at Celtic and more recently West Ham and, with wages estimated at £70,000 a week, Redknapp is keen to remove the striker’s salary from the wage bill.

The 30-year old has made 238 League appearances for Spurs and enjoyed a productive period under Jol. The Dutchman is keen to pair Keane with Bobby Zamora and the forward could cost as little as £4 million.

The former Spurs captain has also played for Wolves, Coventry, Inter, Leeds and Liverpool and has commanded over £75 million in career transfer fees. He will hope the move across London will reignite his career but will have to accept a pay cut if Fulham are to secure him on a permanent deal.
