Could Michael Keane leave Turf Moor before this evening’s 11pm deadline?

The former Manchester United defender has impressed this season with the Clarets, forming a solid partnership at the heart of the defence with Ben Mee.

However, such performances have attracted the attention of plenty of Premier League clubs, including Mark Hughes and his Potters.

With James Tarkowski signing for the Clarets earlier on this evening, Burnley boss Sean Dyche may be tempted to cash in on Keane if the fee, believed to be around £7 million, can be agreed between the clubs.

Stoke were linked with Keane a few weeks back, but Dyche rejected their advances while his move for Brentford’s Tarkowski was up in the air.

Keane has made 28 appearances this season, and contributed three goals in that period from centre half.

He has experience at England Under-21 level, and fits the bill perfectly for what Hughes is looking to build at the Britannia Stadium.

Should Keane move on, he would become Stoke’s second big move of the day, with the signing of Porto midfielder Gianelli Imbula for a club record fee.
