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.
