Leicester have made signing a new young centre-back one of their top priorities this summer as they look to add competition to ageing duo Robert Huth and Wes Morgan.
Keane, a former England U21 international, hasn’t been with Burnley too long, but his impact at Turf Moor has been huge, playing a pivotal role in the club’s promotion from the Championship last term.
Leicester have reportedly identified him as the ideal candidate to bolster their defence, but the Clarets don’t want to lose him and have offered him a new £30,000 per week contract in order to fend off the Foxes’ interest.
However, Keane seemingly has his heart set on a move to the King Power Stadium having snubbed the new contract offer, and now it’s a case of Burnley getting the most they can for him, according to the report.
The 23-year-old has made over 100 league appearances in his short career to date and featured in 44 of Burnley’s 46 Championship matches last term, as they won the title ahead of favourites Middlesbrough.
