Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew gave little away when asked about any interest in signing Robbie Keane.
The Spurs striker is widely expected to depart White Hart Lane in January either on loan or in a permanent deal.
Pardew said: ‘Any player of that sort of quality that becomes available, we would be interested in. Whether it is possible to bring them to the club for a number of reasons, we will have to see.
‘But I am not going to go into individuals because we have had so many names thrown at us and so many of our players leaving, it is ridiculous to name them all, so I will pass on that one.’
