Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has not ruled out making a permanent move for Robbie Keane in the summer, after the Irishman impressed during his loan spell at Villa Park.

Keane plays his last game for Villa against Wigan this weekend, having scored three goals in six games during his time at the club so far. McLeish believes the signing has been a success, and added that there could be scope for a deal in the close season.

"Who knows? We just need to wait and see what happens between now and then," said McLeish.
