Robbie Keane is intent on scoring the goals that will keep Tottenham in the Premier League, after admitting his return to White Hart Lane feels like a homecoming.

Keane switched to Liverpool in the summer in a move that cost the Anfield club up to £20million but after a brief - and largely unhappy - spell on Merseyside, he is back in north London having returned to Spurs in a shock deadline-day move.

Speaking for the first time about the deal, Keane told the club website, "Coming back to Spurs was an easy decision to make because this is my home."

He added: "Firstly, in respect of the club - but also my house is in the area and everything is set up for me to walk right back into.

"It's funny how football works sometimes and situations turn around very quickly, but I can assure fans I will be giving my all to make sure this club stays in the Premier League."

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez, meanwhile, told a press conference televised by Sky Sports News the deal was the best solution for all parties.

"There was a player not doing as well as he could do," said the Spaniard, the day after the 28-year-old ended his six-month spell with the Reds.

"I think for the best for the club and for him we had to do it right now. We could do it (now) because Tottenham was very, very interested.

"We had Tottenham asking, they were pushing, very interested because they are in a bad position and they think Keane can be a fantastic player for them."
