Robbie Keane will remain at LA Galaxy for the foreseeable future after the Irish skipper signed a new ‘multi-year’ deal at the MLS club.
Keane enjoyed a spectacular season in California helping the Galaxy to a second consecutive MLS Cup title. The 32-year-old was linked with a loan spell back in the Premier League during the American close-season but has opted to use the time to rest.
A statement on the club website confirmed Ireland’s record goal-scorer had agreed to extend his stay at the Home Depot Center.
‘The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with forward Robbie Keane’
‘The Galaxy MVP in 2012, Keane led the team with 16 goals in 28 regular-season games while adding nine assists. In the post-season, Keane led MLS in goals with six as he led the Galaxy to their second consecutive MLS Cup championship.
‘Per club and league policy, details of the contract were not released.’
International team-mate Richard Dunne is also rumoured to be on the radar of the American champions.
Keane is currently training with former club Spurs during the MLS off-season and will likely link up with the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of next month’s friendly with Poland in Dublin.
