ATK assistant boss Bastab Roy remained coy on rumours linking Robbie Keane with a move back to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 37-year-old Tallaght native has been heavily linked with a move back to Molineux, where he started his professional career, this week.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's Indian Super League (ISL) game between ATK and Bengaluru FC, Roy confirmed that Ireland's record goalscorer will travel with the team.

"The entire team is travelling and is available for selection," he told reporters.

Asked if Keane would be remaining with the team for the rest of the ISL season, he added: "Keane is the right person to answer this."

ATK face an uphill task in making the ISL play-offs. They are currently in seventh place with just nine points after seven games.

"This league is very unpredictable and it is too early to say that we have lost hope. It will be decided in the last one or two games," Roy added.
