Very keen on being spoiled regularly (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sold

Here is my best explanation:

'very keen on' is the definition.

'spoiled regularly' is the subsidiary indication.

'regularly' means one should take alternating letters (regularly take one letter, leave next etc.).

The alternate letters of 'spoiled' are 'sold'.

'being' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for sold that I've seen before include "Marketed", "Traded", "Retailed", "Handed over for money", "disposed of", "Disposed of for money", "traded in", "Persuaded", "Pushed" and "Vended".)
