LA Galaxy forward Keane enjoyed a successful loan spell at Aston Villa at a similar stage last term, scoring three goals in seven games for the Midlands club.

Republic boss Giovanni Trapattoni has revealed Keane is looking to fix himself with a club on a short-term basis to ensure he is fully fit for his country's crucial World Cup qualifiers against Sweden and Austria in March.

"Robbie spoke to me about this situation after last month's game against the Faroes Islands," said Trapattoni.

"If he has this opportunity, it's his decision. He has to make up his own mind, but in life it's very important to have new challenges and if it suits him, it'll be an injection for him.

"If he stays in America, he would have no football for three months, but his club have a tour in Malaysia.

"He has family - a wife and child - and until now he has not decided about what to do."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
