The Los Angeles Galaxy have signed striker Robbie Keane, the captain of the Irish national team.

Keane agreed to a transfer on Monday from Tottenham Hotspur, where the 31-year-old goal-scorer has fallen out of favour.

Keane is the 10th-leading goal-scorer in Premier League history, playing for three teams before joining Tottenham in August 2002. He moved to Liverpool in 2008, but returned to Tottenham in early 2009 before spending part of last season on loan to West Ham.

Keane says he became intrigued by a move to MLS when David Beckham spoke highly of the Galaxy while they trained together in Tottenham.

The Galaxy lead the MLS standings with 48 points. Los Angeles plans to make a roster move when Keane receives his visa.
