Leicester eye Keane return

Premier League champions Leicester City are considering a £10m for Burnley defender Michael Keane, according to the Mail Online.

The Foxes are keen on bringing in another centre-back as they prepare to defend what was the unlikeliest of title triumphs last season and have identified the former Manchester United man as one of their top targets.

Keane was one of the stand-out performers as the Clarets clinched promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, racking up forty-four league appearances and scoring five goals on route.

He moved to Turf Moor, initially on loan from Manchester United in the summer of 2014 having previously had temporary spells with Derby County and Blackburn Rovers while he spent with 2012-13 campaign with the Foxes in the Championship.

He played twenty-seven times for the East Midlands outfit, scoring twice while internationally he has been capped sixteen times for England’s U21s.
