Published Add your comment

Robbie Keane's move from Tottenham Hotspur to Birmingham City has been put on hold after the striker asked for a wage increase, reports the Daily Mirror.

Birmingham had previously had a £6million bid for the Republic of Ireland captain accepted by Spurs and he was given permission to talk to the Midlands club.

But Keane, 30, who reportedly earns £65,000-a-week at Tottenham, wants a bigger deal to join Blues.

Birmingham have also attempted to resume talks with Kenny Miller and his representatives.

It seems Miller is holding out to see what other offers appear in January before deciding whether to let his contract run down at Rangers or whether to make the move now.

Fiorentina are also interested in the Scotland international who made his name at Wolves before moving back to Scotland in 2006.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish said: "Robbie Keane is at early stages. We'll see what happens.
