Everton Planning To Sell 24 Y/O Defender: Three PL Clubs Who Can Make Use Of His Talents!

Everton are preparing to sell their defender Michael Keane in the summer after the centre-back failed to live up to expectations at the Merseyside club. According to recent reports in the English media, the Toffees are willing to part ways with the 25-year-old as he is one of their big-money summer arrivals who has been unable to produce the goods so far in this campaign. Everton boss Sam Allardyce is ready to ditch the £30m defender Michael Keane in the near future as the club are prepared to cut their losses on their prized asset. It is believed that the Toffees are eager to arrange a transfer for the 25-year-old England international centre-back next summer but are aware that they might have to take a big financial hit on the ex-Manchester United youngster.

Keane arrived from Burnley last summer but has failed to live up to his big-money price tag and has found first-team opportunities limited under Big Sam in recent weeks. He has featured in 27 matches for the Blues of Merseyside this season, scoring once and providing one assist in all competitions. With his future uncertain, let’s take a look at three clubs who can benefit from his services in the near future.

Burnley

Keane was a terrific defender for the Clarets in the last few years before his big-money switch to Merseyside. It only makes sense for Sean Dyche to line up a move for their former talent in the summer as they try and bring him back to the Turf Moor so that he can reignite his old form. Burnley are having a strong campaign under Dyche and it might be a transfer that works out for all parties if the Clarets can convince Everton to sanction a move for the 25-year-old.

Brighton & Hove Albion

The Seagulls are still hopeful of surviving relegation this season under manager Chris Hughton and has found success in the league this term based on their strong defence. Hughton could look to add Keane to bolster his defensive options for the next campaign as he would be a worthy investment who might turn out to be a key asset for Brighton for years to come.

Leicester City

The Foxes have a terrific defender in the form of Harry Maguire but could do with another classy player in their backline with the duo of Robert Huth and Wes Morgan in their 30s and are reaching the twilight years of their career. The potential defensive partnership between Keane and Maguire will serve the club well in the coming years as they try to bridge the gap between themselves and the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’.
