Burnley defender Michael Keane is reportedly close to finalising a £25m move to Everton, becoming the Toffees' third big signing of the summer transfer window.

Everton will complete the signing of centre-back Michael Keane from Burnley in the coming days for a fee of around £25m, according to a report.

The Clarets had been keen to keep hold of their star asset beyond the end of the summer transfer window, despite recently entering the final 12 months of his current deal.

Talks are said to have entered an advanced stage between Burnley and Everton, however, and a move could be finalised before the end of the week.

It is claimed by The Sun that the 24-year-old also attracted interest from his former club Manchester United, but he turned down an approach following Victor Lindelof's arrival at Old Trafford.

Should Keane complete a move he will become the Merseyside outfit's third big signing of the summer, following in the steps of Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen.
