Everton are set to dump mega-money signing Michael Keane in the summer after just one year at the club, according to a report.
The Mirror claim that the big-spending Merseysiders are willing to listen to offers for the England centre-back despite paying £30million for him as part of a massive overhaul last summer.
It is said that manager Sam Allardyce is prepared to sell Keane, 25, at a major loss and that his former club Burnley are interested in rescuing him from Goodison Park.
The Mirror report that Sean Dyche’s side are not, however, willing to come close to paying the £30million fee for which they sold him for just eight months ago.
Keane played the full 90 minutes of Everton’s much-needed 3-1 Premier League win over Crystal Palace on Saturday as he started alongside January loan signing Eliaquim Mangala in the centre of the defence.
The four-times England international has been fully fit for virtually the entire campaign but has been axed from the starting line-up on a number of occasions, starting 18 of the side’s 27 league games after being an ever-present for Burnley last season.
