McLeish confirms Keane interest
Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has confirmed his interest in signing Robbie Keane on loan from LA Galaxy.
Villa have opened talks with Galaxy about a two-month loan deal for the Republic of Ireland international until the Major League Soccer season resumes in March.
McLeish believes the chances of doing the deal to bring Keane to Villa Park are "more than 50-50" although the move will not happen until next week at the earliest.
"We are having a look at it with Robbie and trying to pursue it," admitted McLeish.
"That is the latest although nothing is done and dusted yet.
"If we don't know by Monday, then it probably will not be done. That's why I don't want to say too much in case it doesn't happen.
"We are certainly pursuing it and at the moment, both parties are keen.
"I would say the chances are a bit better than 50-50."
