Coventry Fail To Land Returning Keane

Robbie Keane could soon be lining up against his former Coventry City team-mates after signing on loan for Leeds.

The out-of-favour striker has been loaned by Inter Milan until the end of the season. It is possible that a permanent deal will be done, but Inter will want £12million for the young star.

Keane is now in the running to face Coventry when they visit Elland Road on 30 January.

He fell out of favour at the San Siro following his summer move from Highfield Road when Interís coach was sacked.

Since then Keane has found it hard to get in the side and is behind a lengthy queue of top strikers, including Ronaldo and Christian Vieri.

Speculation has been mounting that Keane would come back to England on loan, but Inter previously insisted that he would only be loaned to an Italian club to gain extra experience.

Coventry City boss Gordon Strachan failed in a bid to bring him to Coventry, and Chelsea were thought to be completing a transfer deal.

But Leeds, who have expressed an interest several times in the past have added him to their already impressive list of young striking talent.

It means that another former Sky Blue, Darren Huckerby could be on the move. Despite Leedsí chronic injury problems he has still struggled to get in the starting line up.
