Wolves have been linked with a bizarre move to bring Robbie Keane back to the Molineux this month.

The Daily Mirror claims Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo wants to sign the 37-year-old to get the club over the line as they chase promotion to the Premier League.

Wolves have announced the signing of 20-year-old striker Rafa Mir from La Liga side Valencia on a four-and-a-half-year deal, but they apparently want some know-how in attack.

The report claims Wolves tried to re-sign Keane in the summer, but he had already committed to Indian side ATK after leaving LA Galaxy.

Keane is under contract until the end of the Indian season in March, but it’sunderstood his former Spurs team-mate Teddy Sherringham, who is the boss at ATK, will allow his to leave.

Keane, who has scored once in three games, made his pro debut at age 17 in 1997 for Wolves and scored scored 29 goals in 87 games before joining Coventry for £6million in 1999.
