Keane completes Spurs switch

Robbie Keane has completed his sensation £16m transfer back to Tottenham Hotspur from Liverpool.

The 28-year-old has returned to Whit Hart Lane just six months after moving to Anfield in a £20.3m deal.

"It was a difficult decision to make to leave Tottenham in the summer," Keane told Spurs' official website.

"It proved not to be the right move for me. I know some Spurs fans will feel I let them down by leaving but I can assure them I shall be giving my all for this Club - this Club has terrific fans and I want to repay them for all their support.

"We've got to get on and fight our way up that league table."

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy added: "We never wanted Robbie to leave in the summer, we acknowledged the six years dedicated service he gave this Club and reluctantly let him go.

"I am delighted that he has chosen to return to us. We can all recall the passion and fight he displayed during his previous seasons with us. I know he is determined to give us his full commitment."

Keane made 28 appearances, scoring 7 goals, during his brief stint at Anfield.
