Eleventh Hour Burnley Keane To Make It Three!

Eleventh Hour Burnley Keane To Make It Three!

Transfer deadline day duly passed at 11 pm last night but then news broke shortly afterwards that Burnley had sealed their third deal of the day. Manchester United defender, Michael Keane would be coming to Turf Moor on loan subject to Premier League clearance until January.

The news completed a good day`s business for Burnley following the earlier announcements that they had also signed Hull attacking midfielder, George Boyd on a three-year deal and secured a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder, Nathaniel Chalobah also until January.

Keane began his career at Old Trafford as a youth and signed his first professional deal with them in 2011. He made his debut for the Red Devils that same year in a League Cup game against Aldershot Town. Several more appearances would follow in the cup competitions but it was only last month that the 21-year-old central defender finally made his first Premier League appearance in the draw away to Sunderland.

The central defender impressed in United`s second-string team winning the Reserve Player of the Year award at the club in 2012 after they became champions of the Reserve League North. First team appearances were limited though so he went out on loan to Leicester City in the 2012/13 season and made 27 appearances for the Foxes. Further loan deals followed during last season. In November 2013 he joined Derby County in a loan deal that would eventually be extended until the end of January. Clarets fans may well remember where he finished up next after signing a loan deal with bitter local rivals, Blackburn Rovers in March 2014 until the end of the season! He even made his debut against the Clarets but was on the losing side after Burnley beat them 2-1 at Ewood Park.

The signing means the club now have three England Under 21 internationals on their books. Keane joins Chalobah and of course Danny Ings on that front ensuring Clarets fans have quite a bit of interest in the Young Lions qualifiers against Lithuania and Moldova coming up soon during the international break.

Really looking forward to the Palace game now, I think 10 points from our next 6 games is a realistic target. Any thoughts??

I honestly think Nblood we are looking at a top ten finish.We have a nice balance to our side.Maybe need a little bit more creativity in midfield to supply Ingsy and the Juke but I have a good feeling bout this year.We have a great manager and a team that WANT to play for him...with that combination the skys the limit,

Top ten would be unbelievable but I would really settle fot 17th! Just staying in the Prem would be amazing anything higher will be a bonus.
