Six Premier League sides fighting it out to secure deal for former Man United defender

Will KeaneFans of Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Everton, Stoke City, Norwich City, and Swansea City are all competing in a pool tournament this evening in the Transfer Tavern, and are discussing reports that their clubs are interested in making a January move for a highly-rated Championship defender.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the six Premier League sides are looking to bring Burnley centre half Michael Keane to their respective clubs.

Keane who began his career at Old Trafford with Manchester United has attracted interes,t with his defensive abilities for Burnley so far this season.

The 22-year-old has been a consistent performer for Sean Dyche’s side but it looks likely that the Lancashire club’s promotion hopes could well be scuppered should the player be allowed to leave the club in January, and Dyche will be doing all he can to persuade the youngster that he would be better off remaining at Turf Moor until at least the end of the season.

The resident Burnley fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern echo those sentiments, and hope he will remain with them and help fire the club back to the Premier League!

Our landlord feels Keane is an incredibly gifted defender, and admits it is no surprise to see so many top-flight teams keep tabs on the talented centre-back!

Burnley fans….. Just how good is Michael Keane? Let us know your thoughts below!
