Roy Keane plans to leave Man Utd

Roy Keane
Manchester United captain Roy Keane says he's planning to leave the club at the end of this season.

The 34-year-old told his club's TV channel, MUTV, that he didn't think he'd be offered a new contract when his current one runs out next summer.

"I'd like to play on for another year or two and it would be good experience for me to play at another club or in another country," he said.

He has said he's interested in playing for Scottish team Celtic.

Keane signed for United from Nottingham Forest in 1993 for a British-record fee of 3.75m

He said it would be "hard to stomach" playing for another club in the Premiership after playing for the Reds.

He's even been tipped to take on a job as coach at United, but has denied this, saying he'd rather make a clean break.
