Keane is set to complete a two-month loan move to Villa Park from LA Galaxy on Wednesday and Given believes that his international teammate will be a great asset to the Midlands outfit.
Given said: "It's great for Villa to secure a player of Robbie's calibre, even in the short-term.
"I think even in training the lads have been very impressed with what they've seen. I think it's a great boost to have him on board."
Given is expected to return to action soon after an absence due to a hamstring injury.
