Robbie Keane has confirmed he is considering offers from the Championship and expects a decision to be made in the "next couple of weeks".

Preston North End are the bookies favourites to land the Irish goalscoring record holder while Keane's former clubs Leeds United and Wolves have also been mentioned as potential destinations.

Speaking on TalkSport today, Keane didn't rule out a move to Preston but admitted there have been no offers from Leeds or Wolves or the cash rich land of China.

"Keep this space, the next couple of weeks and we will see what happens," said Keane on TalkSport.

"I have had a couple of offers in England and abroad. I have had to knock back a couple because it was too far away.

"I have got a few offers on the table. I have had a lot of people asking are you coming back to Leeds, Wolves etc. But you can’t go somewhere where there is not an offer.

"I definitely haven’t heard from Leeds or Wolves. There area a few other Championship clubs who I don’t want to mention at the moment."
