LA Galaxy star Keane focusing on fitness rather than Premier League loan

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane admits he is focusing on getting himself to full fitness rather than thinking about a January loan move.

The Republic of Ireland international has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Aston Villa and QPR in regards to a short-term spell over winter but he suggests he would rather rest his niggles after a successful season which saw the Galaxy take out their second straight MLS Cup.

"I am going to rest up and get ready for next season with the Galaxy," he told Independent.ie .

"I haven't even thought about taking up with any other teams, I have a few little niggles that I have to sort out before I even contemplate making any decisions.

"There has been a lot of speculation and a few clubs are interested, but it wouldn't be right for me to go anywhere if I wasn't 100% fit and ready.

"I don't have any major problems, just an Achilles injury, but if that isn't right, I won't be going anywhere."
