Given sees benefits of Keane loan

Published Add your comment

Fit again keeper Shay Given believes Aston Villa will reap the benefits if they sign his Republic of Ireland team-mate Robbie Keane for a loan spell from Los Angeles Galaxy.

Keane's move to Villa for two months on loan is expected to be completed today and in time for him to be under consideration for Saturday's home clash with Everton. Given, who is back in training after his five week lay-off with a hamstring injury, is confident Keane can still be a threat at Barclays Premier League level.

He said: said: "It's great for Villa to secure a player of Robbie's calibre, even in the short term. I didn't know how fit he was before the last couple of days in training but he looks really sharp, to be honest."
