Everton 'few days' off signing Burnley defender Keane

The Sun reports Everton will wrap up the signing of Burnley defender Michael Keane within the next few days.

The Toffees were given a free path to the 24-year old after Keane's other admirer, Manchester United, filled their centre-back vacancy by securing Victor Lindelof from Benfica.

Keane has made it clear he would like to leave Turf Moor and the Clarets are prepared to make it happen after Everton agreed to match their £25m evaluation.

"We are expecting the deal to be done with Everton in the next couple of days,"said The Sun via an unnamed source.

"There are few things left to sort out but the deal is very close to being finalised."
