Manchester United and Burnley have reached an agreement for the transfer of Michael Keane. Having been on loan at Turf Moor for the first half of the season, Keane will now join on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee, and has signed a three-and-a-half year deal.
Though he began the season out of Sean Dyche's side, Keane has recently established himself in Burnley's first choice eleven. He only made five appearances for United, four in the League Cup and one in the Premier League; most recently, he played all 90 minutes of the 4-0 humiliation at MK Dons. Let's hope things work out better for him at Burnley.
In other transfer news, Ben Pearson has joined Barnsley on a one-month loan.
