Los Angeles Galaxy striker Robbie Keane will train with Tottenham for the next two weeks, the London club have announced.
Keane enjoyed two spells totalling eight years at White Hart Lane before moving to the United States two years ago.
However, it is understood that manager Andre Villas-Boas has no plans to sign the 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international on a temporary basis.
Keane himself ruled out a loan move back to England two weeks ago: "It's been a long season, with the Euros and what have you. I've a few little niggles that need to be sorted out so I don't think at this moment in time it would be right for me to go anywhere," he told Sky Sports.
