Aston Villa Signs Striker Robbie Keane on Two-Month Loan From L.A. Galaxy

Aston Villa signed Ireland striker Robbie Keane on a two-month loan from Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy, subject to international clearance from the sport’s governing body FIFA.

The 31-year-old will be available for Villa’s Premier League home match against Everton in two days, up to and including its game at Wigan on Feb. 25, the club said on its website.

“I’m delighted to be back in the Premier League,” Keane told Villa’s website. “I’m excited about it and I know I’ll really enjoy my time here.”

Keane, who has played in the Premier League for most of his career, joined the Galaxy from Tottenham in August.
