Robbie Keane coming to Villa at last? Well according to James Nursey at The Mirror he is. The 29-year-old Spurs striker, currently on loan at Celtic, is a major target for Martin O'Neill this summer according to the report.

Imagine Keano in the side this year? We'd have converted more of our draws into wins and would be sitting very pretty higher up the league. Full article: Robbie Keane Coming To Villa At Last?
