Robbie Keane wants a permanent move in January and Tottenham will not stand in his way.[LNB] The striker, 30, is ninth on the club's all-time scoring list with 92 goals in 236 appearances but has started just two games since returning from a loan spell at Celtic this summer.[LNB] Great pro: Robbie Keane[LNB] Spurs boss Harry Redknapp said: 'I think he'd like to move. He's not used to not playing. He could sit here and take his wages, but that's not him.[LNB] 'Probably the hardest decision I had to make was last week when I couldn't get him on the bench against Liverpool. It wasn't easy when you respect somebody and what a good player he is or has been.[LNB] 'He would do a great job for anybody. It wouldn't be a loan, it would be a permanent move. He still scores, he is still a great pro and is a top player - he is just unlucky.'[LNB] Redknapp also revealed Ledley King will undergo two weeks of intensive training in a bid to cure the hernia injury that has kept him out since October 16.[LNB] But if the defender, 30, breaks down, he will have to have an operation before Christmas in Germany that would prevent him from playing for a further four to five weeks.
