Robbie Keane has completed his protracted move back to Tottenham Hotspur this evening for an undisclosed fee.

The Irish international never managed to settle at Anfield during his brief six month stay with his boyhood club. After a £20.3m move last Summer, the 28 year old failed to hit the net consistently for The Reds.

Tottenham are delighted to have a former talisman back, and Daniel Levy has spoken of this pleasure to the official Spurs website.

“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,” said Levy.

Keane is being positive on his return to White Hart Lane and knows there are sections of the fans that will need winning over, but he plans to do it as quickly as he can.

“It was a difficult decision to make to leave Tottenham in the summer. 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.” said Keane.

The Irish international will make his second debut for Spurs on Sunday against fierce rivals Arsenal.
