McCarthy: No Keane chance

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has dismissed reports that he is lining up a summer move to lure Robbie Keane back to Molineux.

The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland striker came through the ranks at the club before moving on to Coventry City in 1999.

Keane was loaned out from Tottenham to Celtic last season after slipping down the pecking order at the north London club.

However, McCarthy doesn't believe there is a chance of re-signing the former Internazionale and Leeds United striker this summer.

"We've just been talking about the fantasy league teams and I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want Robbie in their team," he told Sky Sports News.

"I wouldn't be any different but it ain't going to happen.

"He went up to Celtic just to get games and my impression is, from reading what he's said, he wants to play at Tottenham.

"If that's not going to be then he'll go somewhere else."

Meanwhile, McCarthy also appears to have cooled his interest in Hull City midfielder Stephen Hunt after seeing an initial bid for the Ireland winger turned down.
