Former Coventry City forward Robbie Keane has claimed that Birmingham City's interest in him was "Birmingham was looking for a bit of publicity."

Birmingham pulled out of a £6m move for the Tottenham forward who is on a reported £65k a week but Keane, who also denied any interest from West Ham United, speaking to Sky Sports News said: "It was never going to happen.

"I haven't heard anything at the moment but we will just see what happens.

"But like I said, that Birmingham stuff yesterday was a bit bizarre with a statement coming out from them, which I found very strange.

"A deal was never really on the table, so I just think that Birmingham was looking for a bit of publicity really."
