£10m Leicester City bid for top-notch defender rejected

Posted by

Apparently the allure of playing for a Premier League champion and Champions League contender isn’t enough for Leicester City’s targets to force a move through. Case in point: Burnley defender Michael Keane, who the Foxes have had their eyes on for a while now.

According to Sky Sports, Burnley have rejected a £10 million bid from Leicester for their prized defender.  Leicester City have previously submitted failed in bids for Troy Deeney and Victor Wanyama.

The 23-year-old centre-back played for Leicester City on a loan spell during the 2012-13 season back when they were still in the Championship. During that season he made 22 league appearances and scored two goals.

However, he did not make his debut in the Premier League until the 2014-15 campaign with Manchester United. He was later loaned to Burnley and joined the team permanently mid-season.

According to the Express, Keane is seen as a potential challenger for either of the centre-back roles held by veteran defenders Wes Morgan and Robert Huth.
