Keane said: “I wouldn’t get bogged down with deals being done by today or tomorrow, but I certainly hope they will be by the weekend.
“The four Tottenham lads were very keen to come up and listen to what I had to say.”
We will not sign David Villa and Arsenal will win everything next season.
Getting back to the story at hand, Keane was also questioned about Darren Bent but would not be drawn into any speculation regarding that player.
I can’t see us letting Bent go before the start of the season now, maybe at some point during the season, but I do hope he can turn his Spurs career around.
I’ve got a lot of time for the way Keane handles himself with the media. I have no doubt he can still lose it behind closed doors but he has really impressed me with his attitude since taking over the Black Cats.
I’ve also got time for him taking Pascal off our hands. Let’s hope he doesn’t give Keano a two fingered salute because I’ve got a feeling he might see his darker side. Ok, let’s hope he does.
