LA Galaxy striker Keane rejects QPR loan

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane has turned down a loan move to QPR.

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane has turned down a loan move to QPR.

The LA Galaxy star, 32, was wanted by Hoops boss Harry Redknapp to kick-start his rock-bottom side’s Premier League survival push in January.

But the Republic of Ireland captain will stay in America during the MLS close-season.

He said: “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 it would be right to go anywhere.”

Unlike former Galaxy team-mate David Beckham, Keane could now see out his career in Los Angeles after penning a new two-year deal.

He added: “I had a year left and they offered me a new contract at the end of last season.”
