Everton close to completing £25m transfer

Manchester United set to benefit from Michael Keane transfer

Everton are edging ever closer to signing Burnley defender Michael Keane, with the deal potentially being completed within the coming days, reports The Sun.

Everton's head of recruitment, Steve Walsh, has always been a fan of Keane, and recommended that his former club try and sign the young defender last summer, but their bid was, thankfully, unsuccessful.

The Sun is reporting that the England global is set to leave Burnley in the summer transfer window after the defender helped to keep Sean Dyche's side in the Premier League last term.

Keane was called into the England squad for the first time last October and made his senior worldwide debut earlier this year in a friendly defeat to Germany.

The £25m capture will take Everton's summer spending to £78m having already signed Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaasen.

Already one of the busiest clubs of this transfer window, Everton are showing no sign of slowing down. He is on duty with Spain Under-21s as they prepare to face Germany in the European Championship final in Poland.

And while they have paid £7m on Eupen striker Henry Onyekuru, Belgium's top scorer last season, they have loaned him to Anderlecht for a season.

But Pearce, the ex-England captain, can not understand why the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United aren't battling to sign the 24-year-old.

Keane's former club United will afford club will profit from any deal after inserting a 25% sell-on clause in his initial transfer.
