Robbie Keane may be leaving the Premiership once again.

On the final day of the summer transfer window, Keane has been revealed as a transfer target of Besiktas. The Turkish club is reported to have made an £8 million bid to Tottenham for Keane, who is no stranger to being moved on the final day of a transfer window.

Keane was loaned out from Tottenham to Celtic on the final day of the winter transfer window earlier this year. He also rejoined Tottenham from Liverpool on transfer deadline day in February 2009.

Here are some more stories from the final day of the transfer window:

Babel to join Tottenham

Ryan Babel looks set to join Tottenham from Liverpool on a £10 million move. Babel had been linked with both Tottenham and West Ham United, but the former has made a last-day bid for the Dutch international worthy of accepting.

Schwarzer sticking with Fulham

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer will be staying with the club after being linked with Arsenal in recent weeks. Schwarzer was keen on a move to the Gunners, but a transfer fee could never be agreed upon, with Fulham twice rejecting bids.

Bolton acquire Moreno on loan

Bolton Wanderers have bolstered its attacking options with the capture of Spain U-19 forward Rodrigo Moreno on a season-long loan from Benfica. The 19-year-old forward had just transferred to Benfica from Real Madrid last month.
