Robbie Keane will take a break during the MLS off season.
There had been speculation he would move on loan to an English club in January.
But the Irish captain says that is not true.
He says he won’t be taking up any of the loan offers he has received from Premier League clubs.
The Tallaght man is under medical advice to rest until pre-season at LA Galaxy.
That's after he underwent Achilles surgery last year.
"I've been asked to go on loan by clubs, mostly in the Premier League, but it's not going to happen," said Keane.
"Medically, I have been advised to take a break. Two days I after I came home from America last year, I had the operation on both of my Achilles and was back doing intensive training two days later. That's 22 months without a break, so I need one now."
Keane was speaking as LA Galaxy announced a friendly with Shamrock Rovers next February.
