Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp: 'Robbie Keane approach is possible'

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp says that he may make an approach for free agent Robbie Keane.

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he is considering an approach for Robbie Keane, who is available on a free transfer.

Keane has been without a team since leaving Los Angeles Galaxy in November but with the 36-year-old not announcing any plans for retirement, it appears that he intends to continue with his playing career.

The Republic of Ireland legend will turn 37 later this week, but Redknapp has said that any team would benefit from the presence of the forward.

He is quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying: "Robbie is a player you would love to have around your football club. He is just a fantastic professional footballer, a great trainer, enthusiastic person, an absolutely buzzy character.

"We haven't spoken to Robbie but I wouldn't want to be a liar and say I'm not interested in him and then two weeks later bring him in. Any football club with Robbie Keane in is a better football club.

"He can bring an awful lot to any club. At the moment I haven't done anything but it's not an impossibility."

Keane previously worked with Redknapp during their time at Tottenham Hotspur.
