Hammers close to Keane loan deal

West Ham are on the verge of completing the loan signing of Tottenham striker Robbie Keane, who will join the Hammers until the end of the season with a view to a £6 million move should they stay up.

• Hammers nail Ba deal

After weeks of on-off talks and a £4 million straight cash deal with Birmingham collapsing, Keane is on the move across London.

A West Ham source told ESPNsoccernet: "The deal for Robbie Keane is still very much alive. The club will be loaning with a guarantee that we buy him if, and only if, we stay up."

The Hammers will pay a loan fee of £1 million and have agreed to pay his £65,000-a-week wages in full until the end of the season.

Keane has looked in danger of missing out on Spurs' 25-man squad and the opportunity to play regularly has attracted Keane to Upton Park.
