Burnley fans are trying to drink away their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern, amid reports claiming star centre-back Michael Keane will leave the club at the end of the season.
The 24-year-old has enjoyed a phenomenal Premier League campaign at Turf Moor, playing a crucial role in keeping his side in the top flight and making a name for himself within the Three Lions fold – staring in a 1-0 defeat to Germany and a 2-0 victory over Lithuania.
And it now appears the England international is ready to move on, with Sky Sports claiming he’ll leave Sean Dyche’s side at the end of the season.

When our landlord informed the rest of the Tavern, the news particularly pricked the ears of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur fans, with both clubs mooted as potential summer suitors of the commanding centre-back by The Telegraph earlier this week.
Spurs look set to finish a second consecutive season with the best goals conceded record in the top flight, but Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to bring in a centre-back who can operate in a back three or a back four.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have conceded the most goals of any side in the top seven and will be expected to make defensive additions during the summer transfer window.
