They are the sentiments of his representative Michael Kennedy who has denied claims that the former Manchester United midfielder is a target for Forest where he spent three years as a player in the early 1990s.
Some reports are linking 40-year old Keane with the job at the City Ground, which was vacated when new owners the Al-Hasawi family sacked Steve Cotterill recently, but he is not a confirmed target even though he is keen on the role.
"As far as I know, he has not been approached and he has not applied for the job. But I haven't spoken to him about it so I wouldn't know for sure," said Kennedy.
"I can understand why people would link him with the job, being an old Forest player, but I don't know if he is in the running for it.
"I thought it was Mick McCarthy until yesterday. Or perhaps Glenn Hoddle, according to some reports.
"But what I can say is that I think Roy would be interested if he was approached. He is available and I think it would be a job that would appeal to him."
