Liverpool have agreed a deal for striker Robbie Keane to make a sensational return to former club Tottenham Hotspur.
The Republic of Ireland international only left White Hart Lane for Anfield in the summer in an £18million deal.
Keane is currently undergoing a medical in London and, provided personal terms can be agreed, will complete his move before the 5pm deadline.
A Liverpool spokesman told the club's official website: "Liverpool Football Club have reached agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the sale of Robbie Keane."
He failed to find his feet at Anfield, scored just seven goals in 27 appearances and was often left kicking his heels on the bench by manager Rafa Benitez.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp made no secret of his admiration for the former Wolves, Inter Milan and Leeds striker, with Benitez hitting out at his managerial counterpart on Friday.
Keane was left out of the Liverpool squad for Sunday's 2-0 victory over Chelsea, fuelling speculation that he was set to leave Merseyside.
Sky Sports News revealed earlier on Monday morning that Spurs had made a new bid for the talented forward, with Liverpool then giving permission for Keane to hold talks.
And with a fee now agreed, it appears to be only a matter of time before the deal is completed.
Meanwhile, Ryan Flynn's loan deal at Wrexham has been extended until 26th April.
