'Don't get my hopes up' - Liverpool fans react as PL defender reportedly makes transfer decision
By Will Butcher
Liverpool fans are undecided on Twitter over whether to sign Michael Keane after it was reported that he would leave Burnley at the end of the season.
Keane, 24, has been in sublime form this season with Sean Dyche’s side, as his form at the back continues to keep Burnley adrift of a Premier League relegation dog fight.
Sky Sports News reported on their official Twitter account that the former Manchester United defender was set to leave Turf Moor at the end of the season.

The Daily Mail claim Liverpool are in the race to sign Keane along with Everton, Manchester City and Leicester, as he continues to shine in claret and blue.
His form, which has seen the Clarets keep 12 clean sheets in his 37 league and cup appearances this season, has seven seen him earn his first England caps under Gareth Southgate.

If we sign Michael Keane i'll be massively disappointed. Leave him to Man Utd or Everton. #LFC
