Everton Sign Michael Keane from Burnley

Everton have signed Michael Keane from Burnley for a fee that could rise to a club record-equalling £30m.

Keane, 24, moves to Goodison Park after agreeing a five-year contract.

The England defender is Everton’s fifth signing of the summer, with Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez also joining on Monday for £5.2m.

Those signings take Everton’s spending in this transfer window to more than £90m, a total including a deal worth up to £30m for goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Keane started his career at Manchester United but was sold to Burnley by then manager Louis van Gaal for £2m in 2015. United will profit from his move to Everton as they inserted a 25% sell-on clause in the transfer.
