Robbie Keane
Keane may make his debut on Saturday
Leeds unveiled new signing Robbie Keane on Friday after the striker completed his move from Inter Milan on loan for the remainder of the season.

United are then expected to sign Keane on a five-year contract on 1 July.

Chairman Peter Ridsdale said: "I am delighted that we are able to announce that Robbie has signed for the balance of the season and a commitment for five years beyond."

Keane could make his debut against Aston Villa on Saturday and believes his new club have the potential to be the best in Europe.

"With the squad we have we can do well.

"I think we can win the European Cup - there are some tremendous players here.

Ambition

"There are so many young players at Leeds and I know the Irish lads here. We are definitely going places," he added.

Manager David O'Leary is delighted at the latest addition to his squad.

O'Leary said: "I have a very good player who has a hunger to do well."

And hinting at the possibility of more signings he added: "You like to get good players and we have one - we want a couple more and hopefully we can get them."

Ridsdale is fully supportive of O'Leary's intentions to bring in more players.

Despite Leeds' spending now reaching 71m, he said there are transfer funds still available.

"If we believe there are players who could fit in we have demonstrated we will bring them here," he said.
