The Tottenham Hotspur player has insisted that he is staying put.

He said “Unless someone tells me different, it's all speculation…If someone tells me different, I will move on but for now I am a Spurs player. I feel good, I feel sharp and I've had a great pre-season. Fitness- wise, I feel the best I have felt in a long time, so I am just looking forward to the new season.

"That spell on loan to Celtic got me back into the swing of things again; it got my hunger back for football, which I have now, so that will stand me in good stead for the new season.

"Going to Celtic was the best thing that could have happened to me; I enjoyed my time up there. I have worked hard in the off-season this summer – which I always do, anyway – but I had a good pre-season and didn't have any injuries."

Over his 13-year career Keane has played for a total of seven clubs. He has also commanded up to $85 million in transfer fees.

He said that he is getting weary of all the speculations surrounding his possible next moves. “You get bored with the speculation after a while although I've had 12 years of it, so I am used to it now. It's one of those things, speculation. Every time the transfer window opens, players get linked, 70% or 80% of footballers, it's one of those things. I am a Spurs player and I am looking forward to the new season."

Keane has just celebrated his 100th cap with the Republic of Ireland team. Currently his thoughts are focused on his team and also beating Sir Bobby Charlton’s record. So far Keane has scored 43 international goals. Sir Charlton keeps the British record of 49.

“Every Ireland fan mentions to me to try and beat English records, of course…Hopefully, there are a few more goals and caps left in me. That would be a great achievement for me.

"I am 30 now but I feel good and sharp and as long as I feel like that, I'll play for Ireland for as long as I can. I can't say now if I'll be around for the World Cup in Brazil in four years' time. I will get through the Euro 2012 campaign and see how I feel. But I am not looking at the end just yet."
