Aston Villa rush to close deal for LA Galaxy striker Keane

Aston Villa are confident closing a deal for LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane.

The Mirror says Villa are optimistic they will complete the loan signing of Los Angeles Galaxy striker Keane in time for their next Premier League against Everton on January 14.

Villa have held what were described by sources close to the club as "productive talks" with the Republic of Ireland international.

Keane is set to link up with Villa for a two-month period in a £500,000 deal before returning to Galaxy for the start of the Major Soccer League campaign in March.

If all goes to plan, Keane could face his Galaxy team-mate Landon Donovan, who has returned to Everton for a second loan spell, on his Villa debut.
