DONE DEAL: Burnley defender Keane completes Everton switch

Michael Keane has signed a five-year deal with Everton.

The 24-year old joined the Toffees from Burnley for a fee worth an initial £25m that could rise to £30m.

Keane resisted the lure of signing for his boyhood club, Manchester United, to make the move to Merseyside.

"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 told the club's website.
