Keane set for Everton switch

Keane set for Everton switch

Everton have completed the transfer of England centre-back Michael Keane from Burnley on a five-year deal. There'll be a lot more focus on the defender at Goodison Park than there was in Lancashire, especially given the significant fee paid to take him away from Turf Moor.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be at Everton, a fantastic football club with passionate fans and a great tradition and I can't wait to come into training tomorrow to meet all the lads", Keane said.

Everton's fifth signing of the summer transfer window said he was attracted by the chance to be coached by Ronald Koeman, who was an illustrious defender.

"I believe there is much more to come from Michael and that's what makes his signing really exciting for me - we will see his development as a player along with the progression overall within the club". He played in my position when he was a world-class player for a great Barcelona side and a great Dutch side and the style of football he likes to play will suit me.

"I suppose - similar to Gerard Pique - he needed to go somewhere else to get a run of games and prove himself again". The England worldwide was also aware that he would likely have been given less first team opportunities at Old Trafford, and has now chose to move to Everton. He made his worldwide debut in a 1-0 defeat to Germany in March.

He made 35 Premier League appearances for the Clarets last campaign, and was linked with the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea in January.

Everton has picked up goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from Sunderland ($32.25 million), midfielder Davy Klassen from Ajax ($34.9 million), striker Sandro Ramirez from Malaga ($6.7 million) and striker Henry Onyekuru from Anderlecht (undisclosed fee).
