Premier League defender staying focussed amid Everton links
Burnley defender Michael Keane insists he is focussed on ending the season with the Clarets despite speculation linking him with Everton, per Sky.
Keane, 24, has been in fine form all season, helping Burnley to the brink of Premier League survival. Turf Moor has become something of a fortress, with only four defeats for Sean Dyche’s men at home all season.

A return to Manchester United, as well as a switch to Goodison Park, has been mooted, but Keane insists he is only thinking of his current situation.
“It’s inevitable really, these things happen, but I’ve dealt with it all throughout the season and I won’t let it affect me,” said the centre-half. “I’m fully focused on Burnley.
“We’ve got some big games coming up and we need to make sure we stay in the Premier League, so it won’t affect me at all.
“The first thing in our heads is survival, but we think we’ve got enough to do more than that. We just need a win soon to see where that takes us.”
