Keane interest hots up
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Burnley are bracing themselves for more interest in defender Michael Keane as both Liverpool and Everton continue to circulate.
Keane has been a revelation as the Clarets have established themselves in the Premier League this season, and there is no shortage of clubs who are keen to lure him away.
Leicester and Chelsea failed to do so in the summer, while Burnley also had to fend off interest in the January transfer window as the defender's stock continued to rise.
However there is sure to be more interest when the transfer window opens in the summer and Burnley could struggle to keep hold if they get an offer they cannot refuse.
Keane has forced himself into Gareth Southgate's England squad and his value will rise even further if he makes his debut in the forthcoming games against Germany and Lithuania.
"We’ve got two big games coming up with Germany away at Dortmund. I can’t wait for that one especially,” the 24-year-old said. “It’s going to be a special occasion and it’s great to be a part of it. If I can get on and make my debut then I’ll be over the moon. It’s been a dream of mine so we’ll just have to wait and see."
