'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Keane Deal Is Still Some Way Off.

According to first team coach Peter Grant, Blues are by no means certain to sign Robbie Keane from Tottenham despite reports saying a deal is close.

It`s no secret that Birmingham manager Alex McLeish is interested in bringing the striker to St Andrews, he has been for some time and Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that there has been an approach from Blues.

McLeish has been an admirer of Keane for some time, but he knows that the player is going to have plenty of choices when it comes to making a move from White Hart Lane.

Grant said: 'It is a million miles short of what was supposedly breaking last night. There is no such thing as a medical having been put in place. Alex McLeish has inquired about Robbie many times, even when I came here in the summer.

'When you see top quality players not in the side and you want to add quality to your own squad, Robbie definitely comes into that category. The quality of the player does not come into question but I think there are a lot of bridges to be crossed yet.

'The manager would love a talent like Robbie Keane to come to Birmingham but there are a lot of clubs looking at him. Then the player, where does he live? I know what he was like in Glasgow when he liked to be back in London with his family.'
