Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane today confirmed his engagement to his long-term girlfriend.
Ending months of speculation, the 26-year-old Tottenham Hotspur player officially announced he was to tie the knot with model Claudine Palmer, from Dublin.
A spokeswoman for the couple said: "They are absolutely delighted but have yet to set a date for the wedding."
Claudine, 23, has been dating Keane, from Dublin's Tallaght, for four years.
Keane, who made his debut for the Irish team aged just 17 and was recently made captain, started going out with the former Miss Ireland contestant when she was studying at University College Dublin.
The model recently left Ireland to be with Keane in London while he is playing for the Premiership club.
