Michael Keane looks set for a Burnley exit in the summer

Michael Keane will leave Burnley at the end of the season, according to Sky sources.

The England international defender was the subject of bids from champions Leicester last summer but opted to stay at Turf Moor.

Keane, 24, has been linked with a return to his first club Manchester United, though we understand no discussions have taken place.

Everton, Tottenham and Liverpool are all believed to be interested in Keane. He has one year remaining on his contract, which will prompt Burnley to cash in this summer.

Keane was called up to the England squad for the recent World Cup Qualifiers

Everton manager Ronald Koeman made clear his admiration for the defender in January, although another source has told us Keane is not on Tottenham's radar.

Keane won his first England cap last autumn in the World Cup Qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia. He has played in all of Burnley's 33 Premier League games this season.
