LA: Keane's comeback to spark attack

LA GALAXY hope that Robbie Keane's return from injury can help breathe some life into their attack.

The Ireland captain has missed the last three games for Galaxy with an ankle injury, but the Californian side hope to have the Dubliner back for tonight's MLS clash with Philadelphia Union. Giovanni Trapattoni will also keep an eye out for Keane's return as he was named in Ireland's 28-man squad for the four-game series of matches in May/June.

"I think any team would be missing Robbie," said Galaxy forward Mike Magee.

Team-mate Landon Donovan added: "Robbie certainly helps in the attacking areas. We all have to be better in certain parts of the game, but certainly having Robbie back will help the attack."

RANDOLPH IN MOVE TO CITY

IRELAND goalkeeper Darren Randolph has agreed a move from Scottish Premier League club Motherwell to Championship side Birmingham City.

The Fir Park number one will quit the club at the end of the SPL season after penning a two-year deal with the Blues.

The switch brings to an end three years at Motherwell, in which Randolph kept 46 clean sheets in 136 appearances.

The Bray-born 'keeper will join up with his new team-mates at St Andrew's on July 1.

The 26-year-old Republic of Ireland international said: "Following three fantastic years at Motherwell, I wanted to put on record my sincerest thanks to the staff and fans at Fir Park for their great support.

"With my contract due to expire at the end of the month, and after discussing my future with close friends and family, it now feels like the right time to seek a fresh challenge."
