Blues End Interest In Robbie Keane
Birmingham City now have no interest in taking the pursuit of Tottenham`s Robbie Keane any further.
Interest was ended today after a meeting between Alex McLeish and Peter Pannu today.
Blues were willing to pay the £6 million asking price for the Republic of Ireland captain, but talks over the player`s personal terms were unsuccessful.
Peter Pannu said in a statement: 'I met with Alex and Paul today to discuss some new targets - names that we will not be mentioning at this moment in time - as we have decided that the signing of Keane would not be in the best financial interests of the club.'
'Everyone knows he is a tremendous player but having considered the overall package (one which certainly wasn`t unfair on the part of his representatives to ask for given his talent and experience), Keane`s age and the length of contract we felt that financially he wasn`t the best option available.
'This is unfortunate because Keane is a class act but supporters can rest assured we are considering other options and will pursue them where financially viable.'
