Michael Keane almost slipped through the net as a teenager at Manchester United, but now he is edging closer to a £25m switch from Burnley to Everton. Nick Wright profiles the late developing centre-back with one of the coaches who brought him through the youth ranks at Old Trafford.
Last season was a special one for Keane. The 24-year-old’s commanding performances in the heart of Burnley’s defence earned him England recognition and a PFA Young Player of the Year nomination. After leading the Clarets’ promotion to the Premier League in 2015/16, he was instrumental in ensuring they stayed there.
It continued a trend of steady improvement. Keane has only missed five of Burnley’s past 84 league games since 2015, and two-and-a-half years after joining them permanently for just £2m, he is now on the brink of becoming the most expensive defender in Everton’s history.
