Gary Bowyer targets new deal for Michael Keane

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer reveals that he is keen to re-sign Manchester United defender Michael Keane on loan next season.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has indicated that he will attempt to sign Manchester United defender Michael Keane on loan before the end of the summer transfer window.

Keane impressed during a temporary spell at Ewood Park at the end of the last campaign, but while he has admitted that he is fan of the 21-year-old, Bowyer expects the centre-back to feature at Old Trafford in the near future.

The 42-year-old told BBC Radio Lancashire: "The lad is Premier League for me - he's got that quality. He's a Manchester United player and they've got a new manager.

"We continue to monitor it but I fully expect Michael to be in and around Manchester United's first team, especially over pre-season, so that they can have a good look at him."

Keane scored three times in 13 appearances for Rovers during the final two months of the season.
