EVERTON boss Ronald Koeman has declared his interest in Burnley defender Michael Keane.

Speaking on Monday afternoon ahead of Tuesday's 11pm transfer deadline, the Dutchman admitted he has his eye on Keane - someone he has "heard" other clubs are closely monitoring as well.

When asked if the 24-year-old Clarets star, who was called up to the senior England squad for the first time in October, was among the players he was looking at, Koeman said: "Yes, he is one of that list, like some more defenders.

"But I heard he is on more lists, in different teams."

But any deal before tomorrow night's deadline is highly unlikely.

When Sean Dyche was asked about interest in Keane earlier today, he said: "We’re a club who are looking to add players who we think can take it forward, not get rid of them."
