Keene began his career at Fratton Park, but struggled for first team outings as he spent a much of his time out on loan.

He eventually moved on in 2007 and has spent the last six years turning out in Scandinavia.

The opportunity to head home has proven to be too good to turn down, with Keene delighted to be back in familiar surroundings.

Portsmouth's financial struggles mean he has only been offered a one-month deal, but that agreement could be extended if things go well.

Keene told Expressen: "It's no secret that it is a dream to play in the English league again.

"The club cannot afford to sign a longer contract. Portsmouth might look to loan me a month at a time."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
