Wolves have revealed that they tried to sign Robbie Keane on loan.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker started his career at Wolves, but opted to join Celtic instead.
“We asked about Robbie Keane and I spoke to Tottenham on a couple of occasions,” said Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey .
“We knew what his wages were and we would have done that but he wasn’t going to come to us. Almost every loan at this level also comes with a really hefty fee, but we would have pushed the boat out to get Robbie.
“In the end, though, the opportunity to fulfil a lifetime’s ambition to play for Celtic was too much of a pull.”
