Tottenham striker Robbie Keane is closing on a move to MLS side LA Galaxy, according to reports.

• Keane expects to leave

Keane is unwanted by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and said last week that he expected to tie up a move before the end of the transfer window.

The Irish international played in a friendly on Wednesday night against Croatia in Dublin, but is believed to be flying to LA to sign a contract worth a reported $9 million over next two years.

Keane was linked with a transfer to the MLS 18 months ago, with wife Claudine quoted as saying: "Would I like to see him play for a team like LA Galaxy? Yes, I would love that, but it changes all the time."

Asked specifically to comment on the Keane link, a spokesman for the Galaxy said in a statement: "We are always looking to improve our squad and have contacted or been contacted by a host of players during the current transfer window.

"As soon as we have something confirmed in regards to any potential player acquisitions we will be sure to alert everyone."

The striker's departure would open up room for a loan move for former Arsenal frontman Emmanuel Adebayor, who has also been told that he has no future at Manchester City.
