Newly promoted Burnley and their manager Sean Dyche have had a busy transfer deadline day, with the confirmation of Michael Keane on a loan deal until January from Manchester United bringing their captures to three on the final day of the transfer window.

 

Dyche is looking to build a squad capable of keeping the Clarets in the division and building on their first point of the season, which was hard earned during a 0-0 draw with United at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Keane comes highly rated at Old Trafford, but displays in recent matches due to injured defenders seem to have convinced Louis van Gaal that he is not yet ready for United, leading to the temporary switch to Burnley.

The England Under 21 international rose through the academy ranks at Old Trafford and came into the thinking of United fans with his impressive performance during loan spells in the Championship with Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers in recent seasons.

He will be looking to continue his emergence at Burnley, potentially returning to United in January as a player capable of genuinely putting pressure on the senior central defenders that are ahead of him when it comes to challenging for a place in the first team.
