ROBBIE Keane became the latest player to leave Tottenham when he joined Liverpool this week for a fee that could rise to £20.3m.
Keane, 28, underwent a medical on Monday after agreeing personal terms on a four-year contract worth around £80,000 a week. Spurs said they agreed an initial fee of £19m plus a potential further £1.3m.
The Lilywhites have also agreed to drop their official complaint to the Premier League after Liverpool apologised for their conduct in pursuing the Irishman.
However, chairman Daniel Levy is still furious at the deal and said: "I was incredibly disappointed when I first heard, not only that Liverpool had been working behind the scenes to bring Robbie to Anfield, but that Robbie himself wanted to go and submitted a transfer request to this effect.

"I don't regard it as a transfer deal - that is something which happens between two clubs when they both agree to trade - this is very much an enforced sale, for which we have agreed a sum of £19m as compensation plus a potential further £1.3m in additional compensation.
