With the North American Major League Soccer drawing to its October close, Robbie Keane will be kicking his heels for a few months, not knowing what to do with himself. His Premiership days are now well behind him - as his brief loan spell at West Ham proved - but he would still be a lively prospect in the Championship.
His 33 goals in 52 games since his switch to the States prove that he still knows where the net is, and at 33 he would still be regarded as a young chicken in this Neil Warnock recruited squad.
Of course a loan fee and high wage demands may put the mockers on any possible deal, but if GFH Capital have any serious intent whatsoever, this should not be allowed to stand in the way of bringing in the Irishman. Leeds are desperate for somebody who knows where the back of the net is, and Keane has unfinished business at Elland Road.
It may be a long shot, but maybe, just maybe, all those rumours about Leeds signing young Keane are as wide of the mark as a Complete Hunt shot on goal - maybe instead of the young pup Keane, Friar Brian is looking to bring in the old dog namesake instead!
