ROBBIE Keane has confirmed that his next move will be to a club in the UK despite offers from the USA and Australia.

Keane has been without a club since leaving LA Galaxy last year and the former Ireland captain has been mulling over offers, with a host of Championship teams looking for his services.

Speaking on Soccer AM today, Keane stated that he will make his mind up before the close of this transfer window but that he is likely to play in Britain.

"I have been training hard for the last couple of weeks, but I will definitely be somewhere by this transfer window," says Keane.

"It's looking likely that it's going to be the UK. It's a decision I will make by the end of next week. I had a little injury there for a while so I just have to get back fit and healthy, start scoring some goals," added Keane, who said that a move to China was not likely. "It looks like [Diego] Costa is not going there so if he's not going, I will go for half the money he was getting," he joked.
