Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

We are delighted to announce that Robbie Keane has signed for the Club.

The Irish international striker joins us from Leeds United in a deal of up to six years in length and costing up to £7million.

Robbie, still just 22, was a star of Ireland's World Cup campaign this summer when he scored against Germany, Saudi Arabia and Spain. He has scored 13 goals in 37 internationals.

He became Britain's costliest teenager when he signed for Coventry for a fee of £6million from Wolves and after scoring 12 goals in 30 Premiership starts, completed a sensational £13m move to Inter Milan.

His appearances in Serie A became restricted when Inter changed coaches and he was soon on his way back to the Premiership as Leeds United initially brought him in on loan before completing a £12million switch.
