Tottenham striker Robbie Keane admits he is looking to leave White Hart Lane this summer.

Ireland’s all time leading goalscorer has seen chances come few and far between the previous two seasons and has spent time on loan with Celtic and West Ham United

And the 31-year-old, who has been linked with a move away from Spurs having found himself at the bottom of the pecking order, insists a move is on the cards.

“It’s probably likely that I will be going but I can’t really answer where to at the moment,” Keane said.

“There’s obviously a lot of speculation but there’s still a couple of weeks to go and we’ll see what happens.

“I haven’t turned down anything. I think there’s a few people talking to the clubs but that’s all I can really say at the moment.

“I’m sure in the next couple of weeks it will be sorted out. It’s very unlikely anything will happen before the weekend.”

When quizzed about whether he would prefer to remain in London, the Republic of Ireland captain replied “No, I’ll move.

“I don’t know why this story keeps coming out that I want to stay in London. I’ve never said that. I’m quite happy to go anywhere.

“For me, it’s just about playing regular football and if that’s outside London I’m not too bothered.”

Keane also confessed his preference to sign with a Premiership club but admitted he wouldn’t turn down an offer to play in the Championship.

“Of course clubs have to agree a fee but, not being disrespectful at all to the Championship, if I got an option to play in the Premier League, I’m obviously going to take that,” he added.

“But there’s been no talk of any Championship team.”
