Former Ireland captain Robbie Keane has revealed he will decide on his future in the coming weeks after confirming he has had offers from both "England and abroad."

The 36-year-old Dubliner left LA Galaxy last November after a successful five-year period in MLS, and has been linked with other Championship clubs.

Preston North End, who currently boast a sizeable Irish contingent, were the latest club linked with Ireland's record goalscorer (pictured).

"Keep this space, the next couple of weeks and we will see what happens," he said.

"I have had a couple of offers in England and abroad. I have had to knock back a couple because it was too far away.

"I have got a few offers on the table. I have had a lot of people asking are you coming back to Leeds, Wolves etc. But you can't go somewhere where there is not an offer.

"I definitely haven't heard from Leeds or Wolves. There are a few other Championship clubs who I don't want to mention at the moment."

The Tallaght-born striker called time on his Ireland career last August, scoring in his final appearance against Oman.
