Burnley target Barnsley's Roberts as Keane replacement

Burnley are preparing to lose Chelsea target Michael Keane.

The Sun says the Clarets are chasing Barnsley centre-half Marc Roberts as they prepare to receive bids for Keane.

Roberts, 26 and 6ft 4in, has attracted Premier League interest with his meteoric rise from the non-League ranks at Halifax.

He is already fancied by West Brom for his old-fashioned defending style, but Tony Pulis sees him only as a squad man.
