By Amir Mir
Robbie Keane has stated that he “definitely” has not heard anything in regards to a return to Leeds.
The 36-year-old striker confirmed that “a few offers” from Championship clubs have been made for his services after he left MLS side La Galaxy.
Keane has gained valuable experience over the years as a player, scoring over 131 goals in the Premier League and playing Champions League football.
A return to Elland Road would please the supporters as they aim to make that dream return to the top tier of English football.
Nonetheless, Keane explained his current situation and whether a return to former clubs Leeds and Wolves could come to fruition.

“I’ve got a few offers in England and from abroad as well,” Keane told TalkSport. “I’ve had to knock back a couple which were maybe a bit too far away.
“There has been a few offers from championship teams, but I don’t want to mention too much – that wouldn’t be fair to them.
“I’ve had a lot of people asking me about coming back to Leeds and Wolves, and they’re great clubs I’ve played for, but you can’t go somewhere if people actually don’t offer you anything.
“Until it’s actually in writing to me I can’t comment much on it, but I definitely haven’t heard from Leeds or Wolves.”
Keane represented the Yorkshire club on 59 occasions, scoring 15 goals, while he also enjoyed a mini stint at Aston Villa.
The former Republic of Ireland international also played 310 matches for Tottenham, netting an impressive 123 goals and supplying 26 assists.
Football Insider verdict:
Robbie Keane returning to Elland Road would be a magnificent capture for the club, especially considering their current position. It is all going well for Garry Monk and his side, but a little experience will give the young crop a much-needed boost in their bid for promotion to the Premier League. Regardless of his age, Keane is a natural finisher and would still, especially in the Championship, add goals to the side. Not only that, he would be of great help to striker Chris Wood, who has netted 14 goals this season. Their combination, along with the pace and flair of the likes of Hadi Sacko and Pablo Hernandez would work wonders for Monk.
