Leicester make final Keane bid

Leicester City have made a third bid for Burnley defender Michael Keane, according to the Metro.

The Premier League champions are on the lookout for a new centre-back and have made the twenty-three year old their top target.

They have previously had two offers rejected by the Premier League newcomers, and hope that their latest bid of £15m plus add-ons will be enough to secure the deal.

Keane moved to Turf Moor initially on loan in September 2014 before making the move permanent three months later and in total he has made sixty-nine appearances for the Clarets, scoring five goals.

Prior to his switch to Sean Dyche’s side, he had loan spells with Derby County and Blackburn Rovers while he also had a stint with Leicester in the 2012/13 campaign.

The former England U21 international began his career with Manchester United but only made five appearances for them before being sold.
