Robbie Keane will jet to Italy tomorrow to open talks with Inter Milan about a £12million move from Coventry.

The Premiership club confirmed today that talks with the Serie A giants over the 20-year-old Republic of Ireland striker were at an advanced stage and a fee was close to being agreed.

A Coventry spokesman said: "Robbie came into the training ground this morning but left early to speak to his agent and is now going to Italy to talk with Inter Milan."

Sky Blues boss Gordon Strachan admitted Inter's interest in the former Wolves star for the first time this morning, and stressed he would do everything possible to keep him.

But Inter's managing director Gabriele Oriali was already in the process of finalising a deal with Coventry chairman Bryan Richardson, who is currently on a golfing holiday in the United States.
